Invitation to Stockholm Film Festival’s press conference with Vanessa Redgrave

The Hollywood Icon and first time director Vanessa Redgrave will visit Sweden and the Stockholm International Film Festival with her documentary Sea Sorrow

Vanessa Redgrave is famous for her part in the movie Blow Up, directed by Michelangelo Antonionis. Other roles include Murder On The Orient Express (1974), Julia (1977), for which she won an Acadamy Award for best female supporting actress, and Mission: Impossible (1996). Vanessa Redgrave is also one of few who has been awarded both an Acadamy Award, a Tony and an Emmy.

During her stay, she will receive the Stockholm Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is presented annually to honour and acknowledge a longstanding career and an outstanding achievement in cinema. The prestigious award, in the shape of a 7,3kg (16 lb) Bronze Horse is the heaviest film award in the world. It is also a paraphrase on a national design icon, the Swedish Dala horse, and was created by artist Fredrik Swärd. The prize has previously been awarded to filmmakers such as David Cronenberg, David Lynch, Lauren Bacall, Wong Kar-wai and Claire Denis.

The press conference is scheduled for Friday, November 10th at 10 AM. This is an exclusive chance for the press to have their questions to the legendary Hollywood icon answered.
