‘Spotlight’ Oscar Winner Tom McCarthy Honored by San Francisco Film Festival

13 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The San Francisco Film Society has selected “Spotlight” writer-director Tom McCarthy as the recipient of the 2016 Kanbar Award for excellence in storytelling.

The tribute, to be presented during the San Francisco Film Festival’s awards night on April 25, will acknowledge McCarthy’s “exceptional mastery” of character-driven plots that bring audiences along on the psychological journeys of his heroes and antiheroes.

He will also be honored at “An Evening With Tom McCarthy” on April 26 at Bampfa in Berkeley. An onstage interview and a selection of clips from his screenwriting and directing career will be followed by a screening of 2003’s “The Station Agent.”

“‘Spotlight’ won Best Picture at the Academy Awards this past year for many reasons, but its precise script, filled with perfectly conceived characters, inarguably set the tone and provided the heart and soul of the film,” said Noah Cowan, executive director of the San Francisco Film Society.
