Elliot Greenebaum (born 1977) is an American film writer and director, best known for his award-winning debut movie, Assisted Living. He also appeared in the role of Chip Wright in the 1990 Disney TV movie A Mom for Christmas.



Greenebaum was born in Louisville, Kentucky and entered New York University Film School after majoring in philosophy at Amherst College. He took a two-year hiatus from NYU to expand on what was originally intended to be a short film, shooting the film in an assisted living facility in his hometown, using actors as well as the residents of the facility.

Grenebaum was 22 when he began shooting his debut project. The film won awards at several film festivals before its theatrical release in February 2005.

His political work as a filmmaker includes US senate campaigns and advocacy groups like Rock the Vote, and includes such works as the 20-part video series Republican Sex And Marriage Advice spoofing the attitudes of Republicans.
