“You could not ask for more dedicated leaders whose passion and commitment to both their company and the industry has helped bring film to so many moviegoers around the world. Under their watch, Warner Bros. Pictures International has scored record years for not only their company, but has been a consistent leader in boxoffice grosses of all major studios,” said Robert Sunshine, executive director of the event.
