Adding these photos to the page where the filmographies are listed causes the page to take too long to download over slower internet connections. Consequently, photographs have been relegated to these pages. Only a few photos are shown on the main page.
After the Academy Awards, the Cannes Film Festival awards rank second in prestige. Other awards of worldwide prestige include the those given by the Venice Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival, and the New York Film Critics Circle.

Information about only some select festivals and awards is presented on these pages. Also, there are other Latter-day Saint filmmakers for whom we do not have a photograph who are not pictured here.
