Fawcett made his feature film debut in 1996 with THE BOY'S CLUB, a dark adolescent drama starring Chris Penn (Reservoir Dogs, Short Cuts). Released theatrically by Alliance Communications, Variety called THE BOYS CLUB an intense, involving drama and praised Fawcett for investing the film with "a tough realistic sensibility that sets this pic apart from the pack" (May 27/96).
THE BOY'S CLUB went on to receive five Genie Award nominations (Canada's Oscars), including Best Direction, Best Actor (Chris Penn), Best Original Screenplay (Peter Wellington), Best Editing (Susan Maggi) and Best Production Design (Taavo Sooder). THE BOY'S CLUB now enjoys wide video distribution and has been sold to broadcast markets throughout the world.
Ginger Snaps is Fawcett's second feature film.
