KLINE, LASZLO, ROIZMAN, SURTEES, WEXLER RECEIVE KODAK RECOGNITION

Five leading directors of photography were recognized for important contributions to the state-of-the-art of theatrical filmmaking on Saturday, March 26, at an award banquet sponsored by the Motion Picture and Audiovisual Markets Division of the Eastman Kodak Company.

The recipients were the five nominees for the 49th Annual Academy Awards, including Robert Surtees, A.S.C., for "A STAR IS BORN", Owen Roizman, A.S.C., for "NETWORK," Ernest Laszlo, A.S.C., for "LOGAN'S RUN", Richard Kline, A.S.C., for "KING KONG" and Haskell Wexler, A.S.C., for "BOUND FOR GLORY".

The banquet was held at the Tail of the Cock Restaurant in Los Angeles.

"While the members of the academy will necessarily single out one of these cinematographers, we wanted to thank all of them for the technical skills and artistic excellence they brought to the motion picture screen in 1976," said Kenneth Mason, assistant vice president of the Eastman Kodak Company and general manager of the Motion Picture and Audiovisual Markets Division.

"Although talented directors and producers are sometimes more publicly associated and recognized when a feature film is a financial or artistic success," added Al Williams, Pacific Southern regional manager for the Motion Picture and Audiovisual Markets Division, "I think anyone who has been associated with the making of a successful motion picture can testify that it couldn't be done without the director of photography. By recognizing the achievements of these people, we hope we are doing something to further the appreciation of the work done by all directors of photography."

TWO API-SUPPORTED FILMS WIN OSCARS

Two films which were funded in part by The American Film Institute received Academy Awards at the recent 49th Annual Awards Presentation, marking the first time AFI supported motion pictures have been awarded Oscars.

"Harlan County U.S.A.", produced and directed by Barbara Kopple, won an Oscar for feature length documentary. Kopple received a $10,000 grant from AFI in 1973 under the Independent Filmmakers Program, which is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. "Harlan County U.S.A." had its Washington premiere recently at the AFI Theater and is now showing at the Outer Circle Theater in Washington. The film chronicles the unionorganized strike in a Kentucky coal mining community.

"In the Region of Ice", produced by Andre Guttfreund and Peter Werner and directed by Werner, received the Academy Award for Live Action Short Subject. The film, based on a Joyce Carol Oates short story, was produced while Guttfreund and Werner were Fellows at the AFI Center for Advanced Film Studies in Beverly Hills, California.

In addition, Lynne Littman, a member of the AFI Directing Workshop for Women last year, received an Oscar for her Documentary Short Subject "Number Our Days", which she produced separately from her AFI activities. …
