Korey Green was born and raised on the East Side of Buffalo, New York. Growing up in the inner city of a dying urban community wasn’t easy. In a neighborhood where most people chose the street life, which ultimately would lead to jail time or death, college was almost not an option. Following High School, Korey made the decision to continue his education at Alfred State College where he pursued his interest in Creative Writing.
The Forgotten City is Korey’s first project and the concept was birthed out of his experiences living in Buffalo. The film explores Green’s talents as not only a writer, but also as a director. Since completing The Forgotten City Green has soared in indie films directing over 10 short films and a host of music videos, commercials and a feature documentary The Experience which was shot in Ghana, West Africa. Currently, Green just completed feature narrative film The Romans as director and co-writer. Green has won numerous film awards, in New York, LA, Denver, Chicago, San Diego , American black film festival in Miami and the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.
