Lillian STIRLING has been the Managing Director of Balthazar Films since its creation in 1993.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, she started out at the Film Festival in Edinburgh before working at the British Film Institute in London. As Script Reader and then Production Assistant at Enigma (David Puttnam’s production company), she had first-hand experience of “THE KILLING FIELDS” and “THE MISSION”, among others.

Other films and other production houses followed, such as DEFENCE OF THE REALM directed by David Dury, “ON THE BLACK HILL” directed by Andrew Grieve and “DISTANT VOICES STILL LIVES” by Terence Davies.

The cross-over from fiction to documentary was made with such films as “WOMEN AND AIDS” by Jayne Chard and “THE COFFEE BRIGADE” by Georges Drion.
