Freeman, an Oscar winner for "Million Dollar Baby" and a best actor nominee this year for "Invictus," will receive ASC's Board of Governors Award, given to an individual "who has made significant contributions to advancing the art of filmmaking."
Revelations Entertainment, which Freeman and Lori McCreary founded in 1997, has produced or co-produced 10 films, including "Invictus," and is developing the Discovery series "Through the Wormhole."
Revelations also co-produced the ASC's 2009 Camera Assessment Series, designed to give cinematographers and filmmakers information about motion picture cameras and the images they produce.
