Producer Jake Eberts will receive the George Eastman Award at ShowEast 2000, which runs Oct. 11-14 in Orlando, Fla.

“The quality of the films (Eberts) has been associated with over the past two decades is astounding and he has positioned himself as one of the preeminent producer-financiers in the business,” DreamWorks theatrical distribution head Jim Tharp said.

Company man

Before starting his current company, Blackbird Films, Ebert was head of the London- and Paris-based Allied Filmmakers, which he founded in 1985. Prior to that he ran Goldcrest Films, whose projects included the Oscar-winning “Gandhi,” “Chariots of Fire” and “The Killing Fields.”
