Douglas Trumbull

(GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.) - The Berkshire International Film Festival announced that legendary filmmaker, visual effects pioneer, inventor and Berkshire resident, Douglas Trumbull - whose landmark work stamped films including 2001: A Space Odyssey ; Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and Blade Runner - will receive the annual BIFF Achievement in Film Award in a tribute to be held on Saturday, June 4, at the historic Mahaiwe Theatre, and the BIFF will screen a selection of his films on Saturday.


Trumbull directed Silent Running, Brainstorm, Back to the Future... The Ride and numerous other special format films. Trumbull also received the American Society of Cinematographer's Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the 2010 Science Fiction Hall of Fame. In the 1990s, Trumbull moved his studios to Sheffield and employed dozens of Berkshirites, creating a rich and exciting new industry in this community.



"We are thrilled to be honoring Mr. Trumbull, one of the most important and influential people in our community at this year's BIFF, said executive director Kelley Vickery. "The Berkshires celebrates the iconic, groundbreaking work of Mr. Trumbull and his contributions to all of us in this community. We are proud to call him our own."


The evening will begin with a cocktail party at allium restaurant followed by the Tribute.
