FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 25 November 2019 — Multi-hyphenate James Mangold will receive the Cinema Audio Society Filmmaker Award at the 56th Annual CAS Awards on January 25th, at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown.

“The Cinema Audio Society is delighted to honor James Mangold.  His ability to create various quintessentially stylized worlds that appeal to a large mélange of audience makes him an expert storyteller,” said CAS President Karol Urban. “He is a unique talent who has written, produced, and directed a large variety of genres and formats that have garnered him many awards including our own CAS Award for Outstanding Sound Mixing for his film ‘Walk the Line’.”

James Mangold (Director, Producer) is an Oscar nominated writer and director whose work defies easy categorization.

Award-winning films Mangold has written and directed include “Heavy,” “Cop Land,” “Girl Interrupted,” Walk the Line,” “3:10 to Yuma,” and “Logan”.
