Los Angeles
NOAH WAGNER is an award-winning director,
writer and filmmaker, and a graduate of NYU’s
Tisch School of the Arts. This is his second time at Sidewalk ("Fortissimo", 2014).

Noah specializes in ‘grounded genre’ – everything from science fiction to magical realism, moody atmosphere to playful whimsy, and any permutation in between – but always building a world rooted in our own. Through a lyrical lens and an eye for the absurd, he always seeks the truth and believes a good story is as strong as its characters are relatable.

His work has appeared on HBO, NBC, BBC, VIMEO STAFF PICKS and THE NEW YORKER. His films have screened at festivals worldwide, including the Oscar-Qualifying Cleveland Int’l FF, Nantucket FF, and Sonoma Int’l FF, where his latest effort – existential AI thriller, WATCH ROOM - won the Jury Award for Best Dramatic Short. He’s also worked in varying capacities for – among others - THE DAILY SHOW, BBC, NICKELODEON, and HBO, where he spent close to a decade creating ancillary video, VR, and digital content across many platforms for docs, sports, and series such as WESTWORLD, SILICON VALLEY, BALLERS, and GAME OF THRONES. He also loves to teach.
