Motion Picture Sound Editors President Frank Morrone announces that the MPSE will honor director James Cameron (pictured) with the organization's prestigious MPSE Filmmaker Award at the 61st MPSE Golden Reel Awards ceremony, to be held on February 16, 2014, in Los Angeles at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites. The MPSE bestows this honor upon extraordinary filmmakers who embody the spirit, the vigor and innovation of storytelling.

“James has always pushed technology forward to new heights to fulfill his creative vision," says Morrone. "His films have set box office records. Titanic and Avatar—which he wrote, produced, directed and edited—rank as the two highest grossing films of all time. I hope that you will join us for a great evening as we celebrate Mr. Cameron's achievements and contributions to the art of filmmaking.”

Cameron is a film director, producer, screenwriter, and editor. He first found success in 1984 with the science-fiction hit The Terminator. He went on to write and direct Aliens and The Abyss. He found further critical acclaim for his use of special effects in the action packed blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgment Day. After True Lies, he worked on Titanic, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture and garnered him the Academy Award for Best Director and Film Editing. After Titanic, Cameron began working on his science-fiction epic Avatar, which took 10 years to complete and for which he was again nominated for an Oscar as Best Director and Film Editor. Cameron has been nominated for six Academy Awards overall and won three for Titanic.
