Matthew Saville an Australian television and film director, who began his career working as a titles designer for many Australian television series. Several of his short films, including Franz and Kafka have received awards and screened widely at film festivals.
Matthew Saville came to wider prominence as a writer/director with his one-hour film Roy Hollsdotter Live, a bittersweet comedy about a stand-up comedian experiencing a personal breakdown. The film won awards at the Sydney Film Festival in 2003, as well as at the Australian Writers' Guild Awards.
The success of that film led, among other things, to a highly successful career as a television comedy director, including the acclaimed Big Bite and We Can Be Heroes: Finding The Australian of the Year, on both occasions working with Chris Lilley.
In 2007 Saville's feature film debut Noise was released, for which he received an AFI nomination for Best Director. In 2010 he began directing Cloudstreet, a television miniseries version of Tim Winton's novel.
Saville has also worked alongside Josh Thomas, directing several episodes of Please Like Me the ABC hit comedy/drama show.
