Katrin Cartlidge Foundation 2015
Motivated by the late actress Katrin Cartlidge’s inspiring presence, the Foundation exists to identify and support new voices and new perspectives in cinema. For the last ten years the Foundation has appointed a curator, selected from the eclectic friends and colleagues of both Katrin and the Foundation, who in turn choose a recipient for the annual bursary. The recipient is a new cinematic voice whose work, in some way, embodies Katrin’s own integrity of spirit and commitment to independent film.
We are grateful for the generosity and vision of our curators to date; The actors Charlotte Rampling, Emily Watson, Jeremy Irons, Danny Glover and Stellan Skarsgard, directors Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Simon McBurney and Danis Tanović, as well as John Lyons, Annie Nocenti and photographer Juergen Teller.
This years award will be presented by Danny Huston on August 21st at gala event at 21st Sarajevo Film Festival.
