ABOUT TOMMY GARCÍA

Biography

Writer, director, and producer from Orange County, California. My love of filmmaking began with my father's Handycam and some schoolyard buddies in the childhood production of Hit the Road, Ghost! Since graduating from Fountain Valley High School and then Cal State Long Beach, my work has screened at numerous international events, including LA Shorts Fest (the world's largest AMPAS and BAFTA-accredited short film festival) and BFI London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival (the UK's biggest queer film event). In addition to unveiling my latest short, Life Tune, I am currently developing two features and an adult animated series. | View IMDb
