The Oscar-winning filmmaker and auteur that helped develop the face of modern genre filmmaking. His classic works include: The Terminator (1984), The Abyss (1989), Aliens (1986), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and producer of the recent film Solaris (2002). He took mainstream film by storm with his monumental blockbuster Titanic (1997), which is the all-time box office champ. Mr. Cameron receives this award in recognition of his continued devotion to quality filmmaking much in the spirit of our founder Dr. Donald A. Reed.
