On April 26, Temple University TFMA alumni and universally acclaimed film editor William Goldenberg, TFM ’82 will receive TFMA’s distinguished Tribute Award.
Goldenberg has numerous film and television credits, as well as nominations for editing-related awards, including the American Cinema Editors, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. He has also been nominated for the Academy Award for "Best Film Editing" numerous times, including for his work on The Insider (1999), Seabiscuit (2003), Zero Dark Thirty (2012), and The Imitation Game (2014). In 2012, he won the Oscar for “Best Film Editing” for Argo.
“The challenge [with Argo],” said Goldenberg in an interview with The Los Angeles Times, “was having it look like one movie [due to its disparate tones and film stocks]. Ben [Affleck] was always more scared of it than me, in terms of the looks and cutting back and forth,” said Goldenberg. “But if the story is great and the characters are engaging, the audience will go along for the ride.”
The TFMA Tribute Award honors individuals who have made consequential contributions to theater, film and media arts. Past recipients of the award include Tony award winning orchestrator Michael Starobin, pioneer of queer cinema Barbara Hammer, and Academy Award winning inventor of the Steadicam, Garrett Brown.
The award ceremony will take place at Temple Performing Art Center at 1837 Broad Street. A reception will precede the Tribute Award presentation starting at 6 pm.
After Mr. Goldenberg receives the award, Temple Film and Media Arts will present the second day of showings from the Diamond Screen Film and Media Arts Festival.
We hope you can join us!
