Martin Scorsese to be Honored by International 3D Society
"Hugo" director will receive the Harold Lloyd Award for artistic and technical achievement in 3D.
Martin Scorsese will receive the Harold Lloyd Award, the International 3D Society's highest filmmaker honor for artistic and technical achievement in 3D. The award will be presented at the Society’s Creative Arts Awards ceremony, Feb. 1 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
“Marty Scorsese has embodied Harold Lloyd’s vision and passion for captivating movie fans around the world for his entire career,” said Suzanne Lloyd, Lloyd’s granddaughter and chairman of Harold Lloyd Entertainment, who will make the presentation. “With Hugo he has shared his love of filmmaking and filmmakers, in 3D, which would also have thrilled Harold.”
“For all of us involved in the 3D creative process, Mr. Scorsese’s contribution this year with Hugo is an artistic achievement we all celebrate,” said DreamWorks Animation’s Jim Mainard, chairman of the society.
The Harold Lloyd Award was established by the 3D Society and the Lloyd Family. “Mr. Lloyd was a life-long advocate for 3D movies, although technology never allowed him to realize his dream. But in joining last year’s recipient, James Cameron, Mr. Scorsese has not only realized that dream, but he has produced a work of art,” said Jim Chabin, president of the Society.
Lloyd’s great, great granddaughter, actress Jackie Lloyd, will assist presenters on-stage at this year’s honors.
