Kristen Stewart to Receive Zurich Film Festival’s Golden Eye Award

Kristen Stewart will be honored with The Golden Eye Award at the Zurich Film Festival. 

The 29-year-old actress will be heading to the ZFF alongside director Benedict Andrews for the Swiss premiere of her film, Seberg. 

The honor was announced by festival organizers Monday. 

“Although she could have been involved in blockbuster movies after the Twilight series, Stewart has consistently opted for artistically engaged indie films by writers such as Walter Salles, Olivier Assayas, and Ang Lee,” said ZFF’s Nadja Schildknecht & Karl Spoerri. “She succeeded the difficult balancing act between mainstream and art house in an exemplary way. With her fearless portrayal of Jean Seberg she once again proves to be one of the most versatile actresses of our generation.”

The 15th annual Zurich Film Festival is set to take place September 26 — October 6.
