Dennis Doros Is the co-founder with Amy Heller of Milestone Films. Thanks to the company’s work in rediscovering and releasing important films such as Charles Burnett’s Killer of Sheep, Kent Mackenzie’s The Exiles, Lionel Rogosin’s On the Bowery, Mikhail Kalatozov’s I Am Cuba, Marcel Ophuls’ The Sorrow and the Pity, the Mariposa Film Group’s Word is Out and Alfred Hitchcock’s Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache, Milestone has long occupied a position as one of the United State’s most influential independent distributors. In 1995, Milestone received the first Special Archival Award from the National Society of Film Critics for its restoration and release of I Am Cuba. Manohla Dargis, then at the LA Weekly, chose Milestone as the 1999 “Indie Distributor of the Year.” In 2004, the National Society of Film Critics again awarded Milestone with a Film Heritage award. That same year the International Film Seminars presented the company its prestigious Leo Award and the New York Film Critics Circle voted a Special Award “in honor of 15 years of restoring classic films.” In January 2008, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association chose to give its first Legacy of Cinema Award to Dennis Doros and Amy Heller “for their tireless efforts on behalf of film restoration and preservation.” In 2009, Dennis Doros was elected as one of the Directors of the Board of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and established the organization’s press office in 2010. Dennis also serves as the AMIA Board liaison to the Advocacy Committee and has helped shepherd the collaboration between AMIA and the Albanian Cinema Project.
