Frank's Bio

Frank Hall Green is a producer and writer/director.  His directorial debut WILDLIKE, which he also wrote and produced, played at over 200 film festivals, winning nearly 100 awards.  It received a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 100% upon theatrical release in 2015.

Frank is a partner/co-founder of Catch & Release Films with Oscar-winning producer Tom Heller (PRECIOUS, FOXCATCHER, MUD, 127 HOURS).  A development fund and production company, Catch & Release develops projects from the ground up, including an adaptation of GONZO GIRL by Cheryl Della Pietra about her experience as assistant to Hunter S. Thompson; DESCENT with Wildwood/Robert Redford with a screenplay by Mark L. Smith (THE REVENANT).  They are also adapting A GATHERING OF SAINTS for a TV series with Film Nation, based on the book by Robert Lindsay (FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN), and KAFFIR BOY with Zero.Zero, the international best-seller by Mark Mathabane, an autobiographical story of his coming of age in Apartheid South Africa.  Frank and Tom are also producing the impeccably reviewed NY Times best-selling novels THE ART OF FIELDING and WE ARE NOT OURSELVES.

Frank is also a producer on the adaptation of BOY21 by Matthew Quick (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) with Lionsgate and Picture Start.  He is producing THE OUTSIDE STORY starring Brian Tyree Henry; Joel Fendelman’s 3rd feature HALELOOSE with producer Veronica Nickel (MOONLIGHT); and UNCONFORMITY, directorial debut of Jonathan DiMaio.  He recently produced the documentary GETTING NAKED: A BURLESQUE STORY and Joel Fendelman’s sophomore feature REMITTANCE.  

Frank came up from NYU’s graduate film school as a line producer and production manager.   He is an alumnus of both NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the MFA program of the Tisch Graduate film school.  As his thesis for NYU Graduate Film school, Frank directed and produced a unique documentary, SHOOTING SCRIPT, a personal film about his experience being shot (with a gun, not a camera), in the stomach in New York City.  Since NYU, he has cut his teeth producing, writing and directing far too many short films.  He has played all the roles a budding filmmaker should, including shooter, editor, assistant director and boom operator.

Before risking a career in film, Frank worked in Venture Capital and founded an incubator for start-up companies in his hometown of Atlanta, and a nonprofit organization that lobbied on behalf of Arts and cultural institutions around Atlanta.  Frank grew up in Atlanta, went to boarding school in New England at the Eaglebrook School and the Taft School; and has lived and worked in Kenya and Kyoto, Japan as an ESL teacher.   Frank is an avid backpacker and a member of MENSA.  He is on the faculty at the Film & Television departments at New York University and Savannah College of Art & Design.  He splits his time between Georgia and New York.
