AFI to honor producer Steve Golin

Producer Steve Golin, the founder and CEO of Anonymous Content, will be presented with the 2009 Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal at the AFI Life Achievement Award dinner, honoring Michael Douglas on June 11 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City.

Named in honor of director Franklin Schaffner, the award recognizes graduates of the AFI Conservatory or the AFI Directing Workshop for Women.

"Steve Golin is not only a producer of the highest caliber and the guiding force behind some of the most daring films of modern day but also one who inspires other artists to realize their dreams," AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale, said. "It is an honor to recognize him as a graduate of the AFI Conservatory, particularly on this night when we celebrate Michael Douglas, with whom he collaborated on 'The Game.' "

Golin has produced more than 40 film and TV projects, including "Babel," "Being John Malkovich" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." He has also produced such television series as "Beverly Hills 90210," "The L Word" and "Twin Peaks."

He also is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Producers Guild of America.
