Sir Patrick Stewart will be the recipient of another award; this one courtesy of the Chicago International Film Festival.
The 52nd Chicago International Film Festival will run October 13 through 27. Stewart’s award presentation will take place October 25 at the downtown Chicago AMC River East theater, where he will receive the Gold Hugo career achievement award. There will also be an “onstage conversation” with Stewart at the event.
“Audiences have come to know that Stewart brings extraordinary complexity to all of his performances, regardless of genre,” said festival founder Michael Kutza.
