Outstanding contribution award for legendary filmmaker
Veteran screenwriter, director and producer Oliver Stone is to be honoured at The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVFF).
Stone’s career has spanned over forty years, in which he has been responsible for some of cinema’s most iconic features. His prolific canon of work ranges from visceral portrayals of war to political biopics and historical epics.
Titles such as Midnight Express; Platoon; Born on the Fourth of July; Wall Street; Natural Born Killers; The Doors; Alexander; Nixon and The People vs. Larry Flynt have ensured a large collection of gongs for Stone over the years, including numerous Academy Awards and now KVFF’s Crystal Globe for Outstanding Contribution of World Cinema.
KVFF runs from 28 June to July 6 in Karlovy Vary, 130km west of Prague near the German Border. The festival is considered to be among the most prestigious film events in Central and Eastern Europe. Films are submitted in a variety of categories, with around 180 screened every year.
