SVFF created the Snow Angel Award to celebrate industry leaders on the frontlines of enacting change. Last year, clean cosmetic leader Beautycounter joined in our efforts to honor industry activists and change-makers by becoming a Snow Angel presentation partner.
In 2016, we presented the inaugural Snow Angel Award to Dianna Cohen, CEO of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, for her work in reducing worldwide consumption of single-use plastics. The following year, it was presented to Jamie Redford and Jill Tidman of the Redford Center for their accomplishments in environmental impact filmmaking. From raising finishing funds for environmentally-focused features to partnering with Nat Geo WILD to bring conservation-based content to our unique audience, SVFF is dedicated to creating partnerships that allow us to raise awareness for issues with global impact.
Fisher Stevens receives the 2019 Snow Angel Award
FISHER STEVENS has been in the entertainment business for over 30 years. His versatility in the industry is evident from his wide range of credits, from acting to producing to directing, and from film to television to theater. He also works closely with the United Nations Peacekeepers, for whom he has directed various films.
His political and environmental activism has been a main focus of his work, and he has directed “The Confidence Man,” the last installment of the Netflix original series Dirty Money executive produced by Oscar®-winning documentarian Alex Gibney, National Geographic’s Before The Flood with Leonardo DiCaprio, and the Emmy-nominated Netflix original Mission Blue. He also produced Louie Psihoyos’ Racing Extinction for Discovery, his follow-up to Oscar®-winning documentary The Cove as well as Netflix’s Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang.
In 2017, Stevens co-founded BloomFish Productions and co-directed the two-time Emmy-nominated HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2016). Along with Tigerland, which premiered at Sundance this year, BloomFish is currently producing the Untitled Formula E Documentary, which covers the new electric car racing series, and El Gran Fellove with Matt Dillon, the story of the Cuban born musical performer who relocated to Mexico City. BloomFish is actively producing projects with RadicalMedia and is currently in the process of developing a full slate of character and issue driven documentaries as well as narrative film projects.
