Fred Schepisi in It Runs in the Family (2003)

FRED SCHEPISI (Director / Executive Producer) directed Six Degrees of Separation (1993), an adaptation of John Guare’s celebrated play starring Will Smith, Donald Sutherland, Ian McKellan, and Stockard Channing (who received an Oscar® nomination for her performance). Schepisi was voted Best Director by the Australian Film Institute for A Cry in the Dark; Golden Globe nominations for Best Director and Screenplay followed in 1989. For that film, Ms. Streep also received Best Actress honors from the Cannes Film Festival and the New York Critics Circle, and was nominated for an Academy Award ® and Golden Globe.

The Australian Film Institute also honored Schepisi with three wins for The Devil’s Playground: Best Director, Best Film, and Best Screenplay. Nominations followed for Best Director, Best Film, and Best Adapted Screenplay for The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, and the Berlin Film Festival nominated him for a Golden Bear for The Russia House, starring Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Schepisi made his U.S. film debut with Barbarosa in 1982, followed by Iceman and Plenty. The latter starred Ms. Streep, Ian McKellan, and John Gielgud, who won Best Supporting Actor from the National Society of Film Critics. His next film was the highly successful Steve Martin comedy Roxanne. He also made I.Q. with Meg Ryan and, most recently, Last Orders with Michael Caine, Bob Hoskins & Helen Mirren. He has also written various screenplays, including Hitches & Real Fear, Jack Maggs (adapted from the novel by Peter Carey), and I Was Amelia Earheart (adapted from the novel by Jane Mendelsohn). Fred was recently awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award by the Australian Screen Directors Association in Sydney.
