CinemaCon honors Fox's Craig Dehmel with Passepartout Award

Jan 31, 2014

Craig Dehmel, senior VP of sales and strategic planning at 20th Century Fox International, will receive this year’s “Passepartout Award” as part of CinemaCon’s International Day on March 24. The “Passepartout Award" is presented annually to an industry executive who demonstrates dedication and commitment to the international marketplace.

"Respected and admired by his peers throughout the international market, Craig is simply the ideal recipient of this year's Passepartout Award,” said CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser. “Having played significant roles in some of the industry's biggest international box-office releases during his 14-year tenure with Fox, his career speaks for itself.”

Dehmel manages the theatrical release planning and execution of all Fox-distributed titles in over 60 markets worldwide. His role includes strategic dating, competitive analysis, financial review, exhibitor relations, regional oversight and integrated release planning. During his time at Fox, he has helped plan the successful theatrical releases of hundreds of Fox International-distributed titles, including the industry’s biggest International box-office title, Avatar, and the industry’s two biggest animated titles at international box office, Ice Age 4 and Ice Age 3. More recently, he was responsible for the release planning and execution of the Oscar-winning Life of Pi. In 2013, 20th Century Fox International completed its fifth consecutive year exceeding $2 billion global box office, an industry record.

Dehmel has mentored more than 100 interns and students during his career at Fox and has been a guest lecturer at the Anderson School of Business (UCLA) for the past 12 years, teaching a seminar on the fundamentals of the worldwide theatrical business.

CinemaCon, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), will be held March 24–27 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
