The Ken Mason Inter-Society Award recipient for 2019 will be awarded at CinemaCon to Susie Beiersdorf, by Paul Holliman, President of The Inter-Society for the Enhancement of Cinema Presentation (and also Vice President, Sales & Non-Theatrical Distribution at Disney.)

"...outstanding long-term contributions leading to the overall improvement of the motion picture experience..." is the background phrase for this award, and there are plenty of people who will attest to the background work that Susie has contributed over many years.

But her big boss (Jack Kline, Chairman, President and CEO of Christie) proclaimed a nice summation: “In addition to her many professional accomplishments, Susie Beiersdorf has always devoted that rarest of commodities—her personal time—to advance technologies and drive initiatives to enhance the motion picture experience.”
