London-born director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN (DIRECTOR) has
been making films since the age of seven, when he picked up his father's super
8mm camera. In 1989, his surreal short Tarantella was shown on PBS and in
1996, his short Larceny screened at the Cambridge Film Festival.
Nolan's first feature film, Following, which he
wrote, directed and co-edited in 1998, won the Best Director Award at the
Newport International Film Festival, the Tiger Award at the Rotterdam
International Film Festival, the Silver Hitchcock award at the Dinard British
Film Festival and the Black & White Award at the Slamdance International
Film Festival. That success, in turn, brought attention and financing to the
writer/director's next endeavor, Memento.
Written and directed by Nolan, Memento became a
critical and popular triumph, garnering dozens of awards and nominations.
Salient distinctions include: the Independent Spirit Award for Best Director and
Best Screenplay, the Sundance Film Festival Award for Screenwriting, the
Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Screenplay, the Los Angeles
Film Critics Association Award for Best Screenplay, the AFI Film Award for
Screenwriter of the Year, the Directors Guild of America nomination for
Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures, a Golden Globe
nomination for Best Screenplay and an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay.
