Beyond his acclaimed media presence, Alan’s literary forays have deeply etched his name into the annals of the esoteric and metaphysical canon of our time. His most recent literary feat, “Making Contact: Preparing for the New Realities of Extraterrestrial Existence,” published by St. Martin’s Press, in 2021, debuted as the #1 bestseller on Amazon in its field of study, in print, audio, and e-book formats. Recently acquired for the Spanish speaking world by AlphaOmega Press, “En Contacto,” like the English version dives into the deepening mystery of the UFO narrative and extraterrestrial phenomena — themes now resonating within the halls of the US Congress. Alan curated this compendium of the best and brightest thinkers and experiencers in the field. The work received high praise from many colleagues including Jacques Vallee, Erwin Lazslo, and Deepak Chopra and it won the Conscious Life Book Awards in 2023.

In the cinematic sphere, Alan directed the short narrative film, “Never Wear A Dead Man’s Shoes” starring Domenica Scorsese. It captivated audiences at film festivals by blending humor with profound spiritual wisdom. His documentary “A Walking Tour of the East Village” earned high accolades with a week-long screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The work chronicles the zeitgeist of the iconic 1980’s era of New York’s trendy-arts and fashion community of the East Village, spotlighting public figures as Allen Ginsberg and Ann Magnuson along with other local heroes. By weaving a visual ode to the fading art scene as it came up against the gritty gentrification of a city in transition “the film makes a statement about the importance of the arts as a means for keeping humanity alive in an urban setting.” The showing at MOMA took place alongside the distinguished works of established East Village artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Kenny Scharf.

An earlier compliment to the museum showing was Alan’s exhibition of his special brand of multidimensional photography from the 1980’s era. A retrospective of his work at the Courthouse Gallery at the Film Anthology Archive under the discerning eye of its legendary curator, Jonas Mekas, displayed his tribute to the neighborhood that incubated his creative skills. The exposition titled “Can You Tell the Dreamer from the Dream,” took viewers on a visual odyssey through the soul of the city. His imagery represented a timeless sense of being enshrined in portraiture of such cultural deities as Mick Jagger, Andy Warhol, and Nina Hagen against the backdrop of a multi-layered imagery.  His creative lens captured the essence of “place and presence” exemplified through his unique stylized artistry. Complimenting his active visual contributions, Steinfeld shepherded two seminal UFO documentary films to the screen as Executive Producer. The acclaimed features “The Hidden Hand” by James Carman and “Calling All Earthlings” by Jonathan Berman, detail different aspects of the enigmatic and enduring mystery of the extraterrestrial phenomena.
