The Union Internationale des Cinémas/International Union of Cinemas and the Film Expo Group have announced the recipients of the 2022 CineEurope Gold Awards, given to cinema professionals in recognition of their outstanding dedication and service to the sector. The Awards will be presented as part of the CineEurope Awards Ceremony on June 23 at the Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain.
The Gold Awards, introduced at CineEurope 2018, recognize cinema professionals – often in roles that do not necessary command the spotlight – who have made an exceptional contribution both to the ongoing success of their company or organization and to the wider European cinema industry.
The recipients of the 2022 Gold Awards are:
Sylviane Amata, Head of Construction Department, UGC
Mike Bradbury, Group Head of Cinema Technology, Odeion Cinemas Group
Kiril Enikov, Head of Technical (UK), Cineworld
Thomas Erler, Operations Manager, Kinopolis
Suzanna Holmqvist, CMO, Svenska Bio
Eric Meyniel, International Content Director, Kinepolis
Jon Nutton, Marketing Director, Empire Cinemas
Eva Rekettyei, Programing Director, Yelmo Cines
Welcoming today’s announcement, UNIC president Phil Clapp said, “On behalf of all UNIC members, I would like to congratulate each of the CineEurope Gold Awardees for their great achievement, which reflects the respect and admiration they command from their peers and colleagues from across the industry. I would also like to thank them for the hard work, passion and dedication they have each brought to helping make European cinemas thrive. The 2022 Awards prove once again that the strength of our industry lies in its people. We look forward to celebrating with the Gold Awardees at CineEurope in June.”
Andrew Sunshine, president of The Film Expo Group, added, “On behalf of our entire team at the Film Expo Group, we would like to congratulate all of those being recognized with a Gold Award this year for their continued support and dedication to our great industry.
