Steven Soderbergh is the director of "Contagion," starring Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet and Jude Law.

Steven Soderbergh won an Academy Award for Best Director for his 2000 ensemble drama "Traffic." He earned dual Best Director Oscar nominations that year, also receiving one for "Erin Brockovich," starring Julia Roberts in her Oscar-winning performance. Soderbergh had earlier received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for "sex, lies, and videotape," which marked his feature film directorial debut. The film also won the Palme d'Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival.

Soderbergh recently directed his 24th film, the spy thriller "Haywire," featuring Mixed Martial Arts fighter Gina Carano's motion picture debut. "And Everything Is Going Fine," his feature film documenting the life and work of the late performance artist Spalding Gray, had its world premiere at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival. The two had previously worked together on "Gray's Anatomy" and "King of the Hill."

Among his other credits are "The Girlfriend Experience," "The Informant!," "Che," the "Ocean's" trilogy, "The Good German," "Bubble," "Solaris," "Full Frontal," "The Limey," "Out of Sight," "Schizopolis," "The Underneath" and "Kafka."

He also wrote, directed, photographed and edited "Equilibrium," starring Alan Arkin, Robert Downey Jr. and Ele Keats, which was one of a trio of short eroticism-themed films released as "Eros." Michelangelo Antonioni and Wong Kar-wai directed the other two segments. The film had its premiere at the 2004 Venice Film Festival.

In addition, Soderbergh has produced or executive produced a wide range of features, including "Solitary Man," directed by Brian Koppelman and David Levien; "I'm Not There," directed by Todd Haynes and starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger and Ben Whishaw; "Michael Clayton," directed by Tony Gilroy and starring George Clooney; the HBO documentary "His Way," directed by Douglas McGrath; and "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired," directed by Marina Zenovich.

Other producing or executive producing credits include Gregory Jacobs' films "Wind Chill" and "Criminal"; George Clooney's "Good Night and Good Luck" and "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"; "A Scanner Darkly," directed by Richard Linklater; "Rumor Has It…," directed by Rob Reiner; "Syriana," directed by Stephen Gaghan; Lodge Kerrigan's "Keane," which played at the Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals; John Maybury's "The Jacket"; "Far From Heaven," directed by Todd Haynes; "Insomnia," directed by Christopher Nolan; Anthony and Joseph Russo's "Welcome to Collinwood"; Gary Ross' "Pleasantville" and Greg Mottola's "The Daytrippers."

In December 2009, Soderbergh created and directed the play "Tot Mom," at the Sydney Theatre Company. Based on the murder of Caylee Anthony, the play starred Essie Davis as controversial television commentator Nancy Grace, whose crusade for justice ignited worldwide interest in the crime. At the same time, he also directed his 22nd film, "The Last Time I Saw Michael Gregg," an improvised comedy starring the cast of "Tot Mom."

The Directors Guild recently re-elected Soderbergh to a fifth consecutive term as national Vice President.
