Sir Patrick Stewart will be receiving an award from the San Diego Film Foundation.
On October 5, Stewart will be presented with the Gregory Peck Award for Excellence in Cinema at The VARIETY Night of the Stars Tribute which will be held at the Pendry Hotel San Diego in San Diego, California.
The Gregory Peck Award for Excellence in Cinema was created “in honor of famed actor and San Diego area native Gregory Peck” and is given “to an individual whose work has made a profound impact on the art of cinema.”
“Patrick Stewart has captivated audiences for years,” said Tonya Mantooth, Executive and Artistic Director of the San Diego International Film Festival; “With spectacular performances, from Star Trek to his career defining performance in Logan earlier this year, as well as his Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated performance as Captain Ahab in Moby Dick, a role which Mr. Peck made famous more than forty years earlier. We couldn’t be more excited to honor him this year with the Gregory Peck Award.”
