In Memoriam – Martin Cohen

May 22, 2020

Dear ACE Members,

As you may have heard, Martin “Marty” Cohen — a beloved member of the postproduction community who during his career headed post at Amblin Entertainment, DreamWorks and Paramount — died Sunday of natural causes after a battle with heart disease. Remembered as not just a colleague but a friend and mentor who helped launch many careers.

It is in the spirit of mentorship that Marty’s family — his wife, Kathy, his daughter, Maggie, and two granddaughters, Alexis and Maya, sons Gabriel, Hershel, and Elijah, along with daughters-in-law Zynette, Marysa, and Brianne — have chosen to honor the consummate dreamer and their beloved husband, father, and grandfather, by establishing the Martin Cohen Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The fund will support a new generation of artists, filmmakers, and students who fulfill the one request he had of the people in his cutting rooms, and the people in his life — that you, “Dare to dream. And dream big.”

The rest of the wonderful tribute by Carolyn Giardina can be read here:
