DOUG LIMAN (Director) has become acknowledged as one of the most vibrant and original voices in American film with a solid track record of critically acclaimed features including Swingers, Go, The Bourne Identity and most recently, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Liman made his splash with the indie hit Swingers, which he produced and directed and made on a shoestring budget of $200,000. Liman acquired the script from the film’s screenwriter, Jon Favreau and he cast him along with Vince Vaughn, Ron Livingstone and Patrick Van Horne, to star in the story of the search for love in and around Los Angeles’ retro swing bars. Liman’s adrenaline-driven next effort, Go, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and opened to overwhelming positive notices. Liman also served as director of photography on both Swingers and Go.

With his early success of Swingers and Go, Liman established himself as an innovator in the independent film industry. Following Swingers, he directed cutting edge commercials for Levi’s, Playstation and Nike. His spot with Tiger Woods for Nike received critical acclaim during the Palm D’or in Cannes.

Liman is a founding partner of the production company Dutch Oven (formerly Hypnotic), which produces, markets and distributes film and television properties including Terry Tate Office Linebacker, Cry Wolf, and Mail Order Wife. Liman also served as associate producer of the independent film Kissing Jessica Stein.

 Liman created The Bourne Identity movie franchise as producer and director of the blockbuster hit The Bourne Identity, starring Matt Damon, and subsequently was executive producer of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. He most recently directed the blockbuster hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith, starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, for New Regency Pictures.

In 1997, Liman received an MTV Movie Award™ for Best New Filmmaker. He graduated in 1988 with a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University where he also founded the cable TV station. He briefly attended the graduate program of the School of Cinema and Television at the University of Southern California, where he directed his first feature project, the comedy thriller Getting In.

His interests outside the world of filmmaking include working for the Legal Action Center which provides pro-bono legal work on behalf of people with addictions, HIV and convictions, and with Safe Space, which does work on behalf of homeless teens in New York. He is also an avid outdoor enthusiast who guides river trips, climbs, mountaineers, and is an accomplished pilot.
