DGA Fetes Ivory With Griffith

James Ivory, the award-winning director of such films as “Shakespeare Wallah,” “A Room With a View,” “Howards End” and “The Remains of the Day,” will receive the Directors Guild of America’s 1995 D.W. Griffith Award. The org’s career achievement prize was announced at the Sundance Film Festival by DGA president Gene Reynolds.

“He is a richly deserving talent whose work of the past four decades is unique and original,” Reynolds said. “James Ivory is a nonpareil filmmaker in the translation of classic English literature.”

Sundance serves as an informal arena to acquaint indie filmmakers with DGA benefits. In recent years it has developed a low-budget contract specifically targeted to attract filmmakers working outside mainstream outlets.
