BAFTA and Golden Globe® nominated director, MARC FORSTER, made his directorial debut in 2000 with a psychological horror movie entitled EVERYTHING PUT TOGETHER, which he also co-wrote. The film premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival and Forster went on to direct a string of critically acclaimed blockbuster hits including, most recently, THE KITE RUNNER based on Khaled Hosseini ‘s best seller. Although born in Germany, Forster was raised in Switzerland where he attended the famous Institut Montana Zugerberg. However, his early ambition was to make films and in 1990 he moved to America to study film at New York University. Forster commented, "When you grow up like that and suddenly you decide you intend to make movies, everybody says it's impossible, but here I am and I'm living my dream.”

Today, Forster's impressive filmography includes MONSTERS BALL (2001), which received two Oscar® nominations with Halle Berry winning Best Actress, and FINDING NEVERLAND (2004); a film based on the semi-autobiographical story of the friendship between J.M. Barrie and the single mother who lived next door with her four boys. FINDING NEVERLAND, starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, received seven Academy Award® nominations, five Golden Globe® nominations and 11 BAFTA nominations all including Best Picture. Forster was also nominated Best Director by his peers at the Directors Guild Of America.

In 2005 Forster helmed the reality bending thriller STAY starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts and went on to direct hit comedy STRANGER THAN FICTION, with Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Queen Latifah, the following year.
