'Parasite' Distributor Will Receive Woodstock Film Festival Award

Tom Quinn, co-founder of NEON

The film distributor for “Parasite” will receive the 2020 Honorary Trailblazer Award at the Woodstock Film Festival in October.

The Woodstock Film Festival has announced that film distributor Tom Quinn will be the recipient of the award. Quinn was chosen for his commitment towards taking risks through acquiring and distributing films that exist outside of cookie-cutter Hollywood conventions, like Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite,” which made history earlier this month by becoming the first non-English-language film to win an Oscar for best picture. Quinn co-founded NEON with Tim League in 2017. Since, NEON has grossed more than $100 million at the box office.
