Morris Ruskin


Morris has produced over forty five-films including Glengarry Glen Ross (New Line theatrical), The Man from Elysian Fields (Goldwyn theatrical), Lakeboat (Cowboy Booking), Price of Glory (New Line theatrical), Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School (Goldwyn theatrical), The Visit (Urban World theatrical), Everything’s Gone Green (First Independent Pictures theatrical), The Fifth Patient (IFC), The Signal (Magnolia theatrical) and Weirdsville (Magnolia theatrical). Three of his films have premiered at Sundance; six have premiered at The Toronto International Film Festival; he’s produced the opening night film at Slamdance; and High Life was his first film to premiere at Berlin Film Festival. Morris’ films have been oft-feted as well: The Visit was nominated for four Spirit Awards and The Signal was nominated for The Cassavetes Spirit Award.

On the heels of the success of Glengarry, Morris established his own production company, Shoreline Entertainment, in 1992, which expanded to include a sales and distribution arm in 1997 and a management arm in 2009.

Morris has brought hundreds of films to the marketplace. This year Shoreline represented two films in Sundance, both of which both won major awards, as well as two films in Berlin. Moreover, two films were netted Spirit Award nominations, and The Maid was nominated for a Golden Globe. By consistently working with prominent writers and directors and by developing and acquiring projects that are attractive to the mini-majors and foreign markets alike, Morris has ensured for over eighteen years that Shoreline remains a stable yet versatile and ever-evolving organization.

Morris has just finished production on Master Harold and the Boys, which is based on Athol Fugard’s renowned play and stars Ving Rhames and Freddie Highmore, and is presently in production on a 3D stereoscopic animated film.
