Bob Gazzale, prexy and CEO of the American Film Institute, noted that both Zwick and Aronofsky are alumni of the AFI Conservatory. “Both men symbolize a perfect fusion of the Institute’s national mandate to educate the next generation of storytellers and to honor the artists and their work,” he added.
