Drew Pollins, Director Drew has achieved widespread acclaim for his imaginative approach to filmmaking. His 2013 surreal romance Backward Fall won the award for Best Short Film at the Whistler International Film Festival and was soon afterward licensed to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for broadcast. Drew went on to accept a fellowship at the American Film Institute Conservatory (AFI), where in 2016 he received his Master of Fine Arts degree in Film Directing. Three of the films that Drew directed at AFI were nominated for Emmys in 2017 by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences College Television Awards: Dollar King (2016)(Winner, Best Comedy), Lost Chocolate: A Skateboard Story (2016), and The Plumber (2016).
The success of Backward Fall and the film’s theme of a lifelong romance challenged by dementia, led to the introduction of Drew and Pat Moffett at the beginning of 2017. Drew and Pat quickly realized that their creative sensibilities were aligned and began production of the film adaptation of Ice Cream in the Cupboard in April that year. Ice Cream in the Cupboard is Drew's first feature film as Director.
