On Friday, February 8, film lovers from throughout Westchester County will celebrate awards season at Marquee Night – The Picture House Regional Film Center’s (TPH) winter party. The third annual Academy Awards pre-party will once again take place at the beautiful Glen Island Harbour Club overlooking Long Island Sound.

The 2019 Marquee Night will honor longtime Picture House supporter Dale Hisiger and the Matthew S. Hisiger Film Foundation with the Harold Lloyd Commitment to Community Award.  Hisiger is the Executive Director of The Matthew S. Hisiger Film Foundation (MSHFF) which was founded in memory of her son. The mission of the foundation is to provide local high school students with the resources, information, creative inspiration, and financial support they need to pursue a career in filmmaking. In the past 20 years, over 500 young filmmakers have taken advantage of what MSHFF offers. The programs and services of the Foundation include Evening Film Club, a year-long film study course for students grades 9-12 held at The Picture House Regional Film Center. The Foundation also supports the Future Filmmakers Film Festival and offers summer internships, scholarships for college film studies, and field trips to industry venues.

In addition to her work for MSHFF, Dale is an experienced consultant specializing in executive coaching, training, and change management. She is employed by People’s United Bank, as a Learning and Development Business Partner. Hisiger spent six years on The Picture House Board of Directors and currently is an Emeritus Board member. In the words of TPH President Laura deBuys, her efforts have “elevated education at The Picture House to a level we would never have achieved without Dale’s perseverance and support.”  

The 2019 Marquee Night sponsors include The Envelope, Please invitation sponsor McClellan Sotheby’s International Realty, the I’m Ready for My Close Up photo booth sponsor Bischof & Bischof LLP, and Contributing Sponsor East Coast Signs of New Rochelle.
