Writer/Producer/Director Robinson Vil, relocated to Atlanta in 1992 from his native Haiti, graduated from Henderson High School and attended Georgia State University before discovering his passion for film. His first foray into directing in 2001 was driven by his desire to act; the warm reception from family and friends encouraged him to continue, but first and foremost as a filmmaker. Mr. Vil’s 4th short film entitled “Dark Secrets” was officially selected and nominated at the 15th Annual Pan African Film Festival in 2007. Mr. Vil’s passion to tell real stories that the average person can identify with, has led to his writing, producing and directing of “life.less” which was nominated in 2012 for Best Actress and Best Picture drama at the 13th Annual Bare Bones International Film Festival. In 2013, a Haitian short film in which Mr. Vil played the lead and also co-produced was selected at the Cannes Short Film Corners. In 2014, his most recent project, a Haitian feature film entitled “Rasin Mwen-My Roots” won Best Actor, Best Director and Best Picture at the 4th annual Motion Picture Association of Haiti movie awards (MPAH). “Rasin Mwen” has also been officially selected at the 2015 PAFF for its world premiere. Mr. Vil is pre-production and development of 3 more feature films and is currently seeking funding. Mr. Vil hopes to make “Rasin Mwenn” available all around the world very soon.
