Jared Moshé is a writer/director/producer with over 10 years experience in the film industry. Most recently he wrote and directed DEAD MAN’S BURDEN, an award winning western, which critics called, ""IMPRESSIVE. A remarkable widescreen western. A debut feature with impressive command of tone and style, reverberant with echoes of 'True Grit,' 'Unforgiven' and 'The Searchers.'" He produced SILVER TONGUES, nominated for a 2012 Independent Spirit Award, and CORMAN’S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOOD REBEL (2011 Festival de Cannes, 2011 Sundance Film Festival).

In 2006, Moshé helped found Sidetrack Films, the financing and production company behind the Emmy-nominated documentary FAVELA RISING, where he managed $5 million dollars in film investments. While there he crafted innovative and successful distribution strategies with brands such as Nike, Diesel Watches, and Boost Mobile to release the company’s film theatrically in the United States.

Prior to that, Moshé was an executive at the Film Sales Company where he was closely involved in the domestic and international sale of over 75 films including MY ARCHITECT; KONTROLL; FAHRENHEIT 9/11; IMAGINE ME AND YOU, and Oscar-winner BORN INTO BROTHELS.
