Producer Jason Kliot is a well-known name among members of the United States independent film world, thanks to a career that started just as the influential Sundance Film Festival started to take off. One of his first big splashes was the 1995 Todd Solondz comedy, "Welcome to the Dollhouse", which won the Grandy Jury Prize at the '96 Sundance event. Along with various other indie dramas such as '00's "Chuck & Buck" and '04's "The Assassination of Richard Nixon", Kliot also started working on documentaries. That non-fiction sideline led to an Oscar nomination in '06 with his production work on Alex Gibney's "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room". Another memorable documentary project for Kliot was the '08 remembrance "Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson". Kliot also directed two of his own shorts in '94 and '02 and actually won a Special Jury Award at the Aspen Shortsfest for the latter collaboration, "Site", a montage featuring faces of 9/11 terrorist attack victims.
