Elan Mastai is a Canadian screenwriter and novelist. He is best known for The F Word, for which he won the Canadian Screen Award for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards in 2014.
His other screenwriting credits include MVP: Most Vertical Primate and Fury. He has described The F Word as the first time he wrote a screenplay in his own voice, rather than to the commercial demands of a mass-audience film.
He was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, to a Canadian mother and an Israeli immigrant father. He studied film at Queen's University and Concordia University.
In 2015, Mastai secured a $1.25 million deal for his debut novel, All Our Wrong Todays. A science fiction novel about a man from a future utopia who is transported through time to contemporary society, the novel is slated for publication in 2016.
