The CINE Golden Eagle Award has been recognized as a mark of excellence throughout the film and television industry for over 50 years. Since its founding in 1957, CINE has been instrumental in promoting the careers of thousands of filmmakers through juried competitions, educational programs, and networking opportunities. As the industry has evolved, CINE has adapted its programs and competitions to assure that the CINE Golden Eagle continues to provide prestigious peer recognition to established and emerging filmmakers.CINE has a remarkable track record for the early recognition of excellence in filmmaking, particularly among new and emerging filmmakers. Many prominent members of the film and television industry have received the CINE Golden Eagle Award, and for some – such as Ken Burns and Steven Spielberg – it was their first major award. Ron Howard was a teenager, Robert Zemeckis a college student, and Mike Nichols a young comic when each won his Golden Eagle, and hundreds of other distinguished filmmakers, producers and journalists have since followed in their footsteps, some in CINE’s early years (Mel Brooks, 1963) and others in the present day (Martin Scorsese, 2006). For members of the film and television industry, the CINE Golden Eagle Award is an acknowledgment of excellence and validation by their peers. “These award-winning films reflect the powerful content and principles taught in our new productivity work session, The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity.
