Laurence Kardish and James O. Naremore have been named the 2013 Academy Film Scholars by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Kardish, the senior curator emeritus at the Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Film, is writing a book about the independent filmmaker Shirley Clarke called Shirley Clarke: The Original Chelsea Girl.
Naremore, the Chancellors’ professor emeritus in the English department at Indiana University is writing a two-part book project about the director Charles Burnett called The Cinema of Charles Burnett.
The Academy’s Educational Grants Committee, which selected Kardish and Naremore on the basis of their manuscript proposals, will present the first half of the scholars’ $25,000 grant awards at a private luncheon on March 17.
Kardish and Naremore join 13 other Academy film scholars who are currently working on projects.
Established in 1999, the Academy Film Scholars program is designed to “stimulate and support the creation of new and significant works of film scholarship about aesthetic, cultural, educational, historical, theoretical or scientific aspects of theatrical motion pictures.” The Academy’s cultural and educational wing — the Academy Foundation — annually grants $1 million to film scholars, cultural organizations and film festivals throughout the U.S. and abroad.
