David Greenberg graduated from the film program at Temple University and worked in production on both indie films and Hollywood features before shifting focus to screenwriting full time. He has written or doctored over 50 screenplays for features, shorts and documentaries. His feature writing and directing debut “Stomping Ground” premiered in 2016. The features, “Used To Love Her” and “What Matters Most” both played festivals in the past few years. His short film “Interrogation” won a Special Jury Prize at the LA Neo-Noir Film Festival and another short, “The True Meaning of Cool" won an award from The American Film Institute. Other credits include the documentaries “Lovers On The Run: The Bonnie & Clyde Story” and “Celebrity Skin.” David is active in the Philadelphia film community, lecturing to groups, sitting on panels, reading screenplays for the Set In Philadelphia Screenplay Competition, judging screenplays for The Philadelphia Independent Film Awards and The Diamond Film Festival at Temple University. He has also read screenplays for the prestigious Austin Screenwriting Conference and has reviewed films for national publications. He contributed a chapter on the history of photography to publisher Walter Foster’s "The Daily Book of Photography" and was hired to write the book "100 Movies To Watch With Your Kids." An interview with him and case study on the production of "Stomping Ground" will be included in an upcoming book about low budget independent film making. David believes that effective films have to be about something that touches, provokes or otherwise moves an audience and that the source of this content originates in the writing. He specializes in screenplays for ultra-low-budget films. He is currently adapting the boxing memoir “The 16 Minute Man” and will travel to Panama in summer 2019 to adapt another memoir, “Boomer War.”
