ANDY MUSCHIETTI (Director) directed the record-breaking box office hit "IT," an adaptation of the Stephen King novel. "IT" scored the biggest opening weekend ever for a horror film in more than 30 markets. The box office monster crossed the $700 million milestone in worldwide grosses, making it the official highest-grossing horror film of all time.

Prior to "IT," Muschietti made his feature debut with the horror hit "Mama," based on his own short film of the same name. Muschietti directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with his sister, producer Barbara Muschietti, and Neil Gross. The film, which starred Jessica Chastain and was executive-produced by Guillermo del Toro, became one of the top earners of 2013. It was honored with the awards for Best Film and Best Director at the Fantasporto Film Festival and won Best Film and the Audience Award at the Gerardmer Film Festival. Muschietti was also named the Director to Watch at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. His short film "Mama" had also played at numerous film festivals.

Muschietti began his career as a commercial director in Buenos Aires with the iconic production company Cuatro Cabezas. Following a move to Europe, Muschietti, along with his creative collaborator, Barbara, founded Toma 78, a commercial and film production company operating in Barcelona and Madrid. Muschietti has directed hundreds of commercials for such internationally recognized clients as Coca Cola, Mercedes and Ford, and has received top advertising honors, including a Cannes Gold Lion for his work on the Buenos Aires Festival of International Cinema (BAFICI).

Muschietti studied at the prestigious FUC in Buenos Aires, where he directed three acclaimed shorts, "Rosendo," "Fierro Chifle" and "Nostalgia en la mesa 8," which earned awards at festivals such as La Habana, Bilbao and Biarritz.
