Is the Pen Mightier than the Sword?

Howard Goldberg

Howard Goldberg is a graduate of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he majored in painting and filmmaking. He is the recipient of a SUNDANCE INSTITUTE FELLOWSHIP, where he developed the feature film “EDEN,” which he wrote, directed and Executive Produced in association with Water Street Pictures. “EDEN” was in the Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival and played widely all over the world.

Mr. Goldberg also wrote, produced and directed the feature film “APPLE PIE,” a fantasy gangster tale that had its World Premiere at the Deauville International Film Festival and became a cult favorite.  

He has also wrote (book, music and lyrics), produced and directed the Off-Broadway musical “BUSKERS.”

His last feature was, “JAKE SQUARED,” a surreal comedy starring Elias Koteas, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Virginia Madsen, Jane Seymour and Mike Vogel, which played at many major festivals and  also become a cult favorite. 

He filmed one of the first rock videos, Rod Stewart’s “SAILING,” for Warner Bros. Records. 

Next to go into production is a new feature, “Double Exposure,” a glimpse into the mind of a man trying to cope with the guilt he feels from a past relationship which has derailed his marriage and taken control of his life. It is a cautionary tale about carrying resentments, bad choices and an inability to let go of the past and embrace the present.  

When not making films, Howard is always busy painting, sculpting and writing. His novel “THE KING OF CLUBS” was a great success and his drawings and sculptures are in many private collections.
