Balderson is also an author of "Filmmaking Confidential" and "How to Find Investors" which are both highly successful books that are available for you to buy online or at the festival.

About Steve Balderson

Roger Ebert gave Steve’s film, FIRECRACKER, starring Karen Black and Mike Patton, a Special Jury Award on his annual Best Films of the Year list.  

His first film PEP SQUAD premiered at the Cannes Film Festival at Le Marché du Film then became a 90s cult classic.  In 2011, the U.S. Library of Congress selected his film THE CASSEROLE CLUB, starring Kevin Richardson of the Backstreet Boys, for its permanent collection.  In 2015, his film EL GANZO won Best Feature, Best Actor and Best Cinematography at the Salento International Film Festival in Italy.

Film Threat magazine says, “Balderson makes movies that are so gorgeous that it’s not unreasonable to say that, cinematographically at least; he’s the equal of an Argento or Kubrick in their prime. Some people have perfect vocal pitch, Steve has perfect visual composition.”
