Biography

Tomy Wigand was born in Ludwigsburg. He studied at the University of Television and Film Munich, and initially became known as an editor and scriptwriter before he discovered his true calling as a director. In the 1980s he was the film editor on Roland Emmerich's first three films, which were produced in Germany: "Das Arche Noah Prinzip" (1984), "Joey" (1985) and "Moon 44" (1990). In the 1990s he co-authored Hans W. Geißendörfer's acclaimed adaptation of the book by Dürrenmatt, "Justiz" (1993), and directed his first television material, including the very successful German television series "Alarm für Cobra 11" (1994-1996), and the Claussen+Woebke production "Twiggy – Liebe auf Diät" (1998). Wigand had his feature film debut in 2000 with the comedy "Fußball ist unser Leben", a box-office success and winner of multiple awards. His other films include: the adaptation of the Erich Kästner book "Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer" (2003), a big box-office hit and was awarded the German Film Award, the comedy "Polly Blue Eyes" (2005), another film adaptation of a children's book, "TKKG und die rätselhafte Mindmachine", and "Omamamia" (2012). He is also active as a producer and lectures at the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy.
