As a writer, Emmett Lundberg deals heavily with queer issues. As a transgender man, he has navigated many spaces within the LGBTQ community and these themes often emerge is his work.

Lundberg’s original series, BROTHERS, which released its eight episode first season last year, was named one of indieWIRE’s 10 Best Indie TV Series of 2014, as well as one of Video Ink’s 10 Best Digital Series. Larry Flick of SiriusXM called it “More revolutionary than Orange Is The New Black,” and the Huffington Post says it’s “An important new series.”

Directions, Lundberg’s first feature screenplay, was met with much praise. It was a Semi-Finalist for Coppola’s Zoetrope Screenwriting Contest and second round pick for the Sundance Screenwriting Lab. It was also a Finalist for the Columbus/Vague Award through NYU, where Lundberg had the pleasure of pitching directly to Chris Columbus, who complimented his dialogue, as well as his overall script-writing ability.

His thesis short, familiar, milwaukee, played at The Connecticut Film Festival, NewFilmmakers New York and the First Run Film Festival.

After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Lundberg quickly found work within the film & TV industry. He has worked most in the art and set decorating departments of such films as the Oscar-winning Birdman, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Julie & Julia, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Other Guys.
