August 28, 2108—The Giant Screen Cinema
Association (GSCA) is pleased to announce that Toni Myers and Jonathan Barker
have been named recipients of the GSCA 2018 Outstanding Achievement Award. A visionary and pioneering
filmmaker, Toni Myers has graced the giant screen cinema industry since its
beginning as editor, writer, producer, director, and even sometimes narrator.
Jonathan Barker was a world leader in 3D film production and
distribution, specializing in IMAX®/giant screen films that combine human drama
and natural history discoveries. Both awards will be
presented during the GSCA Achievement Awards on Friday, September 21, at the
Westin Chattanooga as part of the annual GSCA International Conference and
is with profound sadness that we share the news that illustrious
producer, distributor, industry leader, and GSCA board member Jonathan
Barker passed away, surrounded by family and friends, the morning of
July 5 from cancer. Jonathan
was the CEO of SK Films, which he founded 20 years ago with his wife
Wendy MacKeigan and Bob Kerr, co-founder of IMAX Corporation. Under his
leadership, SK established a presence as one of the stalwarts of the
industry, recognized with multiple GSCA awards.
