VISIONFEST celebration on Wednesday, August 20th.

Aug 18, 2008

LOS ANGELES – Filmmakers Alliance will bestow its coveted Vision Award to filmmaker KEVIN SMITH as well as the inaugural Nilsson Award to the award’s namesake, filmmaker ROB NILSSON at its annual VISIONFEST celebration on Wednesday, August 20th. The yearly event, which brings together the best of Los Angeles’ independent filmmaking community, will take place at 7:00 pm at the Directors Guild of America, 7920 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

<>The Vision Award is presented to established filmmakers whose artistic ambition and/or contribution to independent film inspires emerging filmmakers around the world. Past recipients include Mike Figgis, Terry Gilliam, Wim Wenders, Allison Anders, Alexander Payne, Werner Herzog and David O. Russell.  <>

KEVIN SMITH is, quite simply, an indie film icon - having helped spawn an entire generation of DIY filmmakers with his first feature, “Clerks”. His humorous, idiosyncratic world-view is present in all of his successive features including, “Chasing Amy”, “Dogma”, “Clerks II” and the upcoming “Zack and Miri Make A Porno”. Although his success has brought him uncomfortably close to Hollywood's orbit, he has always maintained a defiant individuality and endearing unconventionality. However, his contribution to independent film extends beyond his own filmmaking work, including Executive Producing the documentaries, “Reel Paradise” and “Small Town Gay Bar”, as well as the VERY indie features, “A Better Place”, “Drawing Flies”, “Big Helium Dog”, and “Vulgar”.

ROB NILSSON has been a prolific, dynamic, visionary and fiercely independent filmmaker for many years and shows no sign of slowing down. From his breath-taking first film, “Northern Lights” to his Sundance Jury Award-Winning “Heat and Sunlight” to his searing, epic “9@Night” Series, every frame of Mr. Nilsson's films are touched by the hand of a true master and poet. This is no lifetime achievement award, this is a shout of recognition and encouragement or an on-going creative journey from which all emerging filmmakers can and should gain immense inspiration.
