Zachary Wigon is an American film critic and film director. Wigon, who has lived in New York City his entire life, attended Tisch School of the Arts. He has contributed to Slant Magazine, Filmmaker, and The Village Voice as a film critic. His short film Someone Else’s Heart won the Hammer to Nail Short Film Contest and was the basis for his debut feature film, The Heart Machine, a romantic thriller loosely based on his own experiences. It debuted at the 2014 SXSW. Wigon has said that his experience as a filmmaker has informed his film criticism more than the reverse. Sanctuary is his followup.
