Scottish-British-American filmmaker and director.
He started in 1963 with only $10,000 and a volunteer group of friends to produce in three short weeks, on 16mm, a witty story of teen-bungled heist, "That Sinking Feeling." It was well received at Edinburgh and London Film Festivals and it's success enabled Forsyth to receive financial backing for his next feature, "Gregory's Girl," in 1981.
It won the British Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, but was a sleeper in the U.S. The emergence of Forsyth as a filmmaker became more evident with his U.S. productions from 1987, including; "Housekeeping," 1987, "Breaking In," 1989, "Rebecca's Daughters," 1992 and in 1994, "Being Human."
