Elizabeth Wood + Cathrine Hardwicke in Convesation

Catherine Hardwicke’s first film as a director was the critically acclaimed Thirteen, which won multiple awards, including the Director’s Award at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival and Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. She has since become best known as the director of Twilight, which earned the biggest box-office opening weekend for a female director; other credits include Red Riding Hood and Lords of Dogtown. Hardwicke previously worked as a production designer, and she holds a bachelor of architecture degree from UT Austin and did graduate work in animation at UCLA Film School. She frequently works as a mentor at labs for Sundance Institute, Film Independent, and the Ghetto Film School. Hardwicke recently directed episodes for AMC and pilots for CBS and MTV, and she just finished a new pilot, “Eyewitness,” for USA Network. Her most recent film, Miss You Already, stars Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
