Christopher Nolan is to receive the Visual Effects Society's inaugural Visionary Award at their Awards night on January 28, 2011, in recognition of his unique and consistent use of "the art and science of visual effects to foster imagination and ignite future discoveries by way of artistry, invention and groundbreaking work," according to the VES.

Nolan's films, from Memento and The Prestige to The Dark Knight and Inception, have helped to "tell complex and astonishing stories that change the way we think about the world around us," says VES Awards Committee chair Jeffrey A. Okun. "His body of work inspires and he continues to push the envelope both technically and in storytelling. Given the amazing work he’s already created in such a short span of time, he is absolutely the best person to receive our inaugural Visionary Award."
