  • Lasseter, Bird, Docter, Stanton & Unkrich to be honored at 66th Venice Film Festival

    Biennale Cinema 66th Venice Film Festival Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement
    to be awarded to
    John Lasseter
    and the directors of Disney•Pixar

    Venice, 26th January 2009

    The Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement of the 66th Venice International Film Festival (2nd-12th September 2009) is to be awarded to the American director and producer, John Lasseter – one of the protagonists of the innovation in contemporary animated cinema – and to the directors of Disney•Pixar. Exceptionally in the history of the Venice Film Festival, the award celebrates not only a single filmmaker, but also the contribution of all the directors of this visionary studio.

    The Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement – assigned by the Board of Directors of the Venice Biennale, chaired by Paolo Baratta, following the proposal from the Festival Director, - will be presented to John Lasseter at a special ceremony in the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema at Venice Lido, during the 66th Venice International Film Festival (2009), in the presence of some of his oldest and closest Disney•Pixar colleagues, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich.

    John Lasseter is the protagonist of ‘Western’ contemporary animation cinema,” declared . “Always on the lookout for that point at which the avant-garde (whether artistic, technological or formal) meets the blockbuster and the director of magnificent films – such as Toy Story (1995), A Bug’s Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999) and Cars (2006), Lasseter has not only contributed in a fundamental manner to bringing animation cinema to new heights as one of the great expressive forces of the new millennium, but has also become one of the symbols of the most precious, vital and inventive tradition of the great Hollywood cinema.”

    “We are particularly pleased to award this Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement to one of the great innovators and experimenters of Hollywood,” declared thePresident of the Venice Biennale, Paolo Baratta. “We believe that the presence of John Lasseter in Venice, with his fellow Disney•Pixardirectors, will represent an extraordinary opportunity for them to meet young Italian and European animation filmmakers as part of a workshop organised with the Biennale.”
