HALL OF FAME: CREATIVE AREA INDUCTEES

This area is currently under construction. Please find below, the current list of inductees as well as the year in which they were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the members of the OFTA. Please note the most recent additions have been listed like this. A more in-depth area is in development.

From the inception of the Hall of Fame through 2008, inductees were submitted under one of three designations Directing (D), Writing (W), Producing (P). Some individuals were inducted under more than one talent, thus appearing in the list multiple times.

As of 2009, a new set of guidelines was adopted for inducting creative artists into the Hall of Fame. Individuals considered for the Directing, Writing & Producing category could be inducted once and it would be for their contribution in these areas, even if they took on more than one job on any number of films. Below, the original induction dates and designations of those inductees submitted prior to 2009, are listed. New inductees have no designations other than year of induction.
