The acclaimed actress will visit the festival to receive the Honorary Award and hold a Master Class on February 5th. Binoche will also be joining in the festival’s celebration of Ingmar Bergman by selecting Scenes From a Marriage for a special retrospective.
Appearing in films such as The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The English Patient, Three Colors: Blue and The Lovers on the Bridge early on in her career, Binoche immediately established herself as one of the very best. With about 70 films now behind her, Juliette Binoche is one of the most significant actors around today.
“First I want to thank Göteborg Film Festival for this honorary award, I take it as a wink, a tap on the shoulder or even a hug! I almost want to answer that I hope it doesn’t mean anything too serious! I feel very lucky doing what I’m doing, I still have the same passion, still have a lot to learn, the joy I’m sharing on the sets are gold to me! Being an actor is a work of service. The key for me, is to do it with full commitment!” – Juliette Binoche.
Juliette Binoche will attend Göteborg Film Festival from February 2nd to February 4th. She will receive the Honorary Dragon Award at the Dragon Award gala on February 3rd.
Göteborg Film Festival will also honour Binoche with a retrospective of a selection of her films.
