Washington D.C. (February 23, 2011) – Iconic filmmaker and entertainer Tyler Perry will receive the “CinemaCon Visionary Award,” it was announced today by Mitch Neuhauser, managing director of CinemaCon, which will be held March 28-31, 2011, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Perry will be presented with this special honor at the inaugural “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony to take place on Thursday evening, March 31st in The Colosseum of Caesars Palace. The Coca-Cola Company, Official Presenting Sponsor of CinemaCon is also the host of the final night gala awards program.



“From the moment he burst onto the entertainment scene almost ten years ago, Tyler Perry has single-handedly changed the landscape of stage, screen and television with bravado, confidence and tremendous commercial and critical success”, noted Neuhauser. “He has and continues to serve as an inspiration to so many and from his first feature film ‘Diary of a Mad Black Woman’ to his recent release ‘For Colored Girls’, Perry has endeared himself to millions of fans with his unique blend of hope and humor that inspires audiences of every age with his extraordinary body of work. We could not be more honored to present someone who is a true visionary with the 2011 CinemaCon Visionary Award”.



Added Joe Drake, President of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Division, “Tyler is the very definition of a visionary. He has literally created everything he has based on a vision that was uniquely his, and one that he worked tirelessly to bring to life despite all kinds of barriers. We are so proud to be in business with Mr. Perry, who couldn’t be more deserving of this honor.”



“I am so pleased to be recognized with this award from CinemaCon,” adds Perry. “The success of the industry depends on whether exhibitors can see movies through fans eyes, and anticipate what they want. I’m honored to be receiving this honor from the exhibitors who have helped me provide a great movie-going experience to my fans from the beginning.”
