The John Schlesinger Award

John SchlesingerIn memory of John Schlesinger, this special award is given to a first-time doc or narrative feature film director at our Closing Night Party. John Schlesinger’s (1926-2003) outstanding work as a director over the past four decades includes such highly acclaimed films as Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man, The Day of the Locust, Sunday, Bloody, Sunday and Cold Comfort Farm — to name a few.

Mr. Schlesinger’s films reveal a keen social awareness, a fascination with love’s complexities, and a penchant for drawing out big performances. An actor himself, he helped to make stars of such performers as Julie Christie, Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, and has the distinction of directing eight different actors in Academy Award-nominated performances.

Past winners include Ballast by Lance Hammer, Moms Mabley: I Got Somethin’ To Tell You by Whoopi Goldberg, and Keep On Keepin’ On by Alan Hicks.
