Distribution Chief Dan Fellman and to celebrate his impressive 38-year career within the industry. Each year the award is presented to an industry member or company whose achievements, accomplishments, and dedication to the industry are unequalled.
“We are extremely honored to present Neil Campbell with this award at ShowEast this year. Campbell’s continued dedication and commitment to advance the movie industry is second to none,” stated Andrew Sunshine, President of the Film Expo Group. “For 44 years, Neil has been a leader in the industry and we congratulate him on this award.”
