Craig Baldwin (US) is an experimental filmmaker.

Craig Baldwin is a filmmaker and curator whose interests lie in archival retrieval and recombinatory forms of cinema, performance, and installation. Baldwin attended lectures by the experimental film-maker Bruce Connor during his studies at San Francisco State University. He studied the work of Dziga Vertov, John Heartfield, Robert Nelson, Paul Sharits and other artists who use "found" footage. He is the recipient of several grants, including those from the Rockefeller Foundation, Alpert Award, Creative Capital, Phelan, AFI, FAF, and California Arts Council.

Over the last two decades, his productions have been shown and awarded at numerous international festivals, museums, and institutes of contemporary art, often in conjunction with panels, juries, and workshops on collage and cultural activism. His own weekly screening project, Other Cinema, has continued to premiere experimental, essay, and documentary works for over a quarter century, recently expanding into DVD publishing. 

Baldwin is renown for the movie Spectres of the Spectrum (1999), a science fiction film about a young woman with telepathic powers, who travels back in time to save the world from an electro-magnetic pulse.  An archeology about technology from media to electromagnetism: video.google
