James Cameron and Jon Landau to receive Voices of the Earth Award at 13th Annual Lumiere Awards

The Advanced Imaging Society announced that director James Cameron and producer Jon Landau would receive the Voices of Earth award at the 13th annual Lumière Awards, which will take place on February 10, 2023, at The Beverly Hills Hotel. The Voices of Earth award “celebrates innovation and inspiration in environmental storytelling and acknowledges creatives who have found a unique approach to strengthen the audience’s appreciation for nature and illustrate the importance of taking care of our shared planet.” Adam McKay previously won the award last year for the movie Don’t Look Up.

The award will recognize the “transcendent and immersive” nature of Cameron’s latest film, Avatar: The Way of Water, which has already been nominated for a slew of major awards.

In a statement, AIS President Jim Chabin said that “James Cameron and Jon Landau’s first Avatar revolutionized filmmaking technology 13 years ago winning several of our top awards including Best Picture. With Avatar: The Way of Water, these masters of film have again left us awestruck with magnificent characters and stories, but also reminders of just how fragile life and ecosystems are. We are thrilled to honor them and this epic film for being ‘Voices for the Earth’ to millions of movie fans across the world.”
