The Capri Hollywood Film Festival has named Brad Fischer to receive its 2018 Producer of the Year Award. Fischer this year added the Luca Guadagnino-directed Suspiria, the Eli Roth-directed The House With A Clock In Its Walls and the Antoine Fuqua-directed Suge Knight Showtime docu American Dream/American Knightmare to a credit list that includes David Fincher’s Zodiac, Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan.
“There is no one more deserving than Brad Fischer to be Producer of the Year for 2018,” said festival founder and producer Pascal Vicedomini. “Without his creativity and strong commitment in telling compelling stories, we wouldn’t have these incredible films from Luca, Eli, and Antoine this year. Bravo Brad! We are so happy to be both honoring you and showing these wonderful films at Capri Hollywood.”
Fischer said he was “incredibly grateful to the Capri in the World Institute and the Festival’s Board of Artists and Producers, including Pascal Vicedomini, Lina Wertmuller and Marina Cicogna for this amazing honor. It is, moreover, one that belongs to the visionary directors with whom I’ve had the privilege of working over the last eight years to produce these three remarkable films.”
Annapurna Pictures’ Vice opens the fest’s 23rd edition December 26.
