Producer/director STEVEN SPIELBERG 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.

More 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 went on to direct, write and produce A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Most recently, he directed and produced Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

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 and the Directors Guild of America, as well as five Golden Globe Awards and three DGA Awards. 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.
