Thyrone Tommy is a well-known Canadian writer, producer, and director for his short films, one of which, Mariner, was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2016. Learn to Swim, which he co-wrote with Marni Van Dyk and based on his personal experiences with love and loss, as well as the guilt and anguish that accompany such emotions, was the first feature film that he appeared in as an actor. Learn to Swim was released in 2021. The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), and the National Basketball Association (NBA) collaborated and created a total of 5 short films, one of which is this director’s work titled “Draft Day.” In conjunction with the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) 75th anniversary season, a short film program entitled “NBA Films For Fans created with OLG” was designed to celebrate Canada’s connection to the game of basketball. The program features the work of five Canadian filmmakers as well as fans of the sport. It is important to note that Tommy’s Draft Day is not to be confused with the film of the same name, directed by Ivan Reitman and released in 2014, which was centered on the world of the National Football League. The work that Thyrone Tommy has done as a Director is shown first in this listing.
