The Cinema Audio Society (CAS) has announced that Director and Producer James Mangold will receive the Cinema Audio Society Filmmaker Award at the 56th Annual CAS Awards on January 25th at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown.

James Mangold (Director, Producer) is an Oscar nominated writer and director whose work defies easy categorization. Leapfrogging from Sundance indie to cop noir, psychological drama to romantic fantasy, pulp horror to musical biopic, traditional western to round the world caper, two films starring a beloved Marvel hero, and now, with his tenth feature, Ford v Ferrari, Mangold continues to expand his repertoire while keeping constant the humanist themes, intimate moving performances, striking imagery and staging that have come to define and unify his work. Award-winning films Mangold has written and directed include Heavy, Cop Land, Girl Interrupted, Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, and Logan.
The CAS Awards will honor Outstanding Achievements in Sound Mixing in seven categories for film and television, as well as present the CAS Student Recognition Award.
