“We are proud and honored to recognize Roger Corman’s outstanding contribution to the art of film,” said Paolo Cherchi Usai, senior curator of motion pictures, George Eastman House. “We are doing so as a long overdue tribute to a true master of cinema—a master in the literal sense of the term. As a producer and director, Corman has forever changed the landscape of American independent cinema, which is why he amply deserves the George Eastman Award.”
