ShoWest honors Bodrov
EmptyRussian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov will be honored with the ShoWest International Achievement Award in Filmmaking.
Bodrov will be recognized at the convention's International Day Luncheon on March 10, the first day of the event, which runs through March 13 at the Bally's and Paris Las Vegas hotels.
"Since making his debut in 1984, Bodrov has gone on to create films with a humanistic perspective, rich sense of humor and consummate craftsmanship," ShoWest co-managing director Mitch Neuhauser said.
Brodrov's "Mongol," an account of the life of Genghis Khan, will be released in the U.S. by Picturehouse on June 6.
Bodrov has helmed 14 features, writing or co-writing all but two. He first won international acclaim for his 1996 drama "Prisoner of the Mountains," which received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for best foreign-language film.
ShoWest is produced by the Nielsen Film Group, a unit of Nielsen Business Media, parent company of The Hollywood Reporter.
