William Friedkin may be best known for his film «The Exorcist» (1973), one of the most terrifying films of all time. It received ten Academy Award nominations including Best Director and Best Picture. Prior to that, he directed «The French Connection» (1971), for which he received the Director’s Guild of America Award and the Academy Award for Best Director. The film also won for Best Actor, Best Editing, Best Screenplay and Best Picture.

Other films include «Sorcerer» (1977), «The Brinks Job» (1979), «Cruising» (1981), «To Live and Die in L.A.» (1985) and «Blue Chips» (1994). In 1997, he directed a Showtime/MGM television remake of «Twelve Angry Men» with Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott, Hume Cronyn and Ossie Davis. The DGA nominated him for Outstanding Directorial Achievement for Best Dramatic Special. It was also nominated for six Emmy Awards. Other films include «Rules of Engagement» (2000) and «The Hunted» starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio del Toro (2003), «Bug» with Ashley Judd (2007) and his most recent film, «KILLER JOE» starring Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch which was released in 2012.

He made his operatic debut in 1998 with a widely acclaimed production of Berg’s «Wozzeck» at Maggio Musicale Florence, conducted by Zubin Mehta. In 2002, he made his Los Angeles Opera debut with a double bill of Bartok’s «Duke Bluebeard’s Castle» and Puccini’s «Gianni Schicchi,» R. Strauss’ «Ariadne auf Naxos,» also with Kent Nagano. In 2005, he directed Saint-Saens’ «Samson and Delilah» for the New Israeli Opera, Tel Aviv; and Verdi’s «Aida» at the Teatro Regio Torino in Italy.

In 2006, he directed «Duke Bluebeard’s Castle» / «Gianni Schicchi» for Washington National Opera at The Kennedy Center. The same year, he enjoyed an extremely successful collaboration with Kent Nagano at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich, with new productions of Strauss’ «Salome» and the world premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s «Das Gehege.» Both productions continue to be performed through the 2008 season. For Los Angeles Opera, he directed a double bill of «Suor Angelica» / «Il Tabarro,» which premiered September 6, 2008. In 2011, he directed the opera «The Makropulos Case» at Maggio Musicale, Florence, Italy and «Tales of Hoffmann» at Theater an der Wien in Vienna, Austria in 2012.

Within the last two decades, Friedkin has returned to his early roots in television drama with the highly acclaimed «12 Angry Men,» and has directed episodes of «CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.» He has also directed such searing action films as «Rules of Engagement, „The Hunted,“ „Bug,“ and „Killer Joe“ starring Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch. His most recent film is a documentary „The Devil and Father Amorth“ which premiered at The Venice Film Festival in 2017. He is currently in development for a television series based on „Killer Joe.“
