He initially considered himself to be a "book nerd" growing up, who was interested in becoming a writer, painter or musician. He came to realize that film contained all those elements and attended film school.
His first feature film Antiviral debuted at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section. Cronenberg re-edited the movie after the festival to make it tighter, trimming nearly six minutes out of the film. The revised film was first shown at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival
