A.I.

STEVEN SPIELBERG (Director/Producer/Writer) is one of the most influential, successful and respected filmmakers of his generation.  Spielberg is a two-time winner of the Academy Award for Best Director, for his work on "Saving Private Ryan” and "Schindler's List,” for which he also won the Oscar for Best Picture as the film's producer.  His production companies, Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks SKG, have enjoyed monumental success in the entertainment industry.

Born in Cincinnati and raised in the suburbs of New Jersey and Arizona, Spielberg developed a love for photography and filmmaking at an early age.  He had made several amateur films by the time he finished high school and began studies at California State University, Long Beach.  His short film "Amblin” was screened at the Atlanta Film Festival in 1969, and opened the door for him to begin directing at Universal Studios.

Spielberg's first television film, "Duel,” was soon followed by his feature directing debut, "The Sugarland Express,” in 1974.  Two of his early films, "Jaws” and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” were record-breaking box office successes.  Spielberg went on to produce and/or direct eight of the twenty highest-grossing films in history, including "Jurassic Park,” "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and "Raiders of the Lost Ark.”  In addition to the aforementioned films, he has directed "1941,”  "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” "Always,” "Empire of the Sun,” "The Color Purple,” "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,”  "Hook,” "The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and "Amistad.”  He has also served as producer or executive producer on many highly successful films including "Men in Black,” "Back to the Future,” "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?,” "Twister” and "The Mask of Zorro” among many others.

Most recently, Spielberg executive produced along with Tom Hanks on the HBO series "Band of Brothers,” which chronicled the plight of American servicemen in action during World War II.  He began production on the film "Minority Report” soon after finishing work on "A.I. Artificial Intelligence.”

Spielberg has been honored with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Irving G. Thalberg Award, and has also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.  In the fall of 2000, Spielberg became the first recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Filmmaking by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts – Los Angeles.
