Zurich Film Festival: Steve Golin to Receive Career Achievement Award
The Anonymous Content CEO produced Tom McCarthy's 'Spotlight' and USA Network's buzz-worthy series 'Mr. Robot,' both of which will screen in Zurich.
Anonymous Content CEO Steve Golin will be honored with this year's career achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival.
The veteran producer and co-founder of Propaganda Films, will attend the festival together with Sam Esmail, Christian Slater and Rami Malek, the creator/showrunner and stars, respectively, of Anonymous' new hit series Mr. Robot, which airs on the USA Network. Zurich will hold a special screening of the pilot episode of Mr. Robot during the festival and will also show Golin's latest feature production, Tom McCarthy's Spotlight, which stars Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber and Michael Keaton.
In his long and acclaimed career, Golin has found equal success on the big screen – with features such as the Oscar-nominated Babel, David Fincher's The Game and Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – and on TV, producing cult series such as The L Word and True Detective.
“It is rare to find someone who has had such significant and wide-ranging successes across the entertainment landscape over a long period of time,” said Zurich festival co-directors Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri. “Steve has given so much to the film world, in so many ways – he deserves to be recognized for his accomplishments and we are honored to do so at this year’s ZFF.”
Golin started in the music video business, founding Propaganda Films with partner Joni Sighvatsson in 1986 and building up the firm into the world's largest music video and commercial production company in the world. He helped launch the careers of numerous directors, including Michael Bay, Spike Jonze, Gore Verbinski and Antoine Fuqua.
