IAIN SOFTLEY (Director/Producer) has earned praise for his work on a wide range of feature films. In 1994, he gained widespread acclaim for his feature film directorial debut, "Backbeat,” which he also wrote. The film told the story of The Beatles' founding band member Stu Sutcliffe and his intense and often stormy relationships with John Lennon and photographer Astrid Kirchherr, before Sutcliffe's tragic and untimely death. The film received a BAFTA Award nomination for Best British Film, and brought Softley a London Film Critics Circle Award for Best British Newcomer.

The following year, he helmed the visually arresting and culturally prescient thriller "Hackers,” starring Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie in her feature film debut. Softley followed with "The Wings of the Dove,” the 1997 film adaptation of Henry James' novel, starring Helena Bonham Carter and Linus Roache. The film earned a number of awards and award nominations, including four Oscar® nominations and multiple acting honors for Bonham Carter.

Softley's next film was the 2001 sci-fi drama "K-PAX,” starring Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. He more recently directed and produced the 2005 supernatural thriller "The Skeleton Key,” starring Kate Hudson, Gena Rowlands, Peter Sarsgaard and John Hurt.

Born in West London, Softley had an early interest in painting, photography and music. He studied English Literature at Cambridge University, where he also began directing local theatre productions. Graduating in 1979, Softley went on to direct documentaries at the BBC and Granada, winning a Gold Hugo Award for his work at the 1991 Chicago Film Festival. Early in his career, he also helmed music videos for a variety of artists.
