Adrien Brody To Be Awarded Lifetime Achievement Award At Locarno Film Festival | Film News
Hollywood actor Adrien Brody will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Locarno Film Festival for extraordinary contributions to film. Brody is the sixth to be awarded the title since it was created in 2011, in which year Harrison Ford was the first winner.
The Locarno Film Festival first took place in August 1946, “with a screening of Giacomo Gentilomo’s “O sole mio” on the lawn of the Grand Hotel“. It has since moved to the Piazza Grande which houses 8000 viewers a night during the festivities. The festival is known for discovering what is new in film and celebrating the work of innovators in the industry.
Adrien Brody is most known for his role as Wladyslaw Szpilman in Roman Polanski‘s The Pianist (2002), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. Brody’s achievement will be celebrated with a screening of the film on August 4 at the festival.
This year, the Locarno Film Festival takes place between August 2-12. More information on the festival, including the full lineup, will be released on July 12.
