Filmmaker to receive ASC's Board of Governors Award

Ron Howard will receive the American Society of Cinematographers’ Board of Governors Award.

Nod, bestowed annually upon an individual for “extraordinary contributions to advancing the art of filmmaking,” will be presented at the 21st annual ASC Outstanding Achievement ceremonies Feb. 18 at the Century Plaza.

“Ron Howard is a dedicated filmmaker who is creating an extraordinary legacy of artful and memorable films,” said Russ Alsobrook, chairman of the org’s awards committee. “He has earned the admiration of our members for his collaborative spirit and commitment to the art of visual storytelling.”

Howard won Oscars for directing and co-producing “A Beautiful Mind” and Emmys for producing the miniseries “From the Earth of the Moon” and the comedy series “Arrested Development.” He also won a National Medal of Arts in 2003 from the National Endowment of the Arts.
