Bobby Abate

Born 1973 - New Haven, Connecticut

Bobby Abate (Brooklyn, NY) makes films and videos that fuse nostalgia, psychodrama, and spectacle with a distinctly modern resonance. His recent work, the occult themed Love Rose (2010) and Gossip (2011) premiered at the New York Film Festival, and his 1960’s era supernatural drama The Evil Eyes (2011) won \aut\FILM Award for Best LGBT Film at the 50th Ann Arbor Film Festival. Other exhibitions and screenings include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the Moscow International Film Festival, Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, San Francisco Cinematheque, and the ICA in London and Palm Beach. Critics celebrated his underground feature Certain Women, co-directed with Peggy Ahwesh; and MoMA called the film “as sustained and as successful as Todd Haynes’ acclaimed Far From Heaven,” with an “almost opposite approach."

Film Comment Magazine named Bobby one of the top 25 emerging Filmmakers for the 21st Century  Among other accolades, he is also the recipient of the Princess Grace Award. He is currently working on his first mainstream feature Dressed in Black with Damsels in Distress co-producer Charlie Dibe
