Daryl Hannah is coming to Macedonia, Bitola to receive the Special Golden Camera 300 Award for her outstanding contribution to the world cinema. In honour of Daryl Hannah, on October 17 the festival will screen one of her latest films, Kill Bill 2.

Hannah, from her first film role in the Fury (1978) by B. de Palma, played in the films of a series of exceptional directors who are considered the most talented authors of our time. Often she played together with the legends of world cinema, always giving an outstanding acting performance, which brought for her worldwide popularity and appreciation.

Daryl Hannah has played in over 50 titles, including Blade runner (R. Scott), Roxanne (F. Schepisi), Excitement (N. Jordan), Wall Street (O. Stone), Steel Magnolias (H. Ross). Daryl Hannah also worked with many art-house directors like Hector Babenco At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Fernando Trueba Two Much, Robert Altman The Gingerbread Man, Michael Radford Dancing at the Blue Iguana, John Sayles Casa de los babys.

After all, Special Award "Golden Camera 300" for outstanding contribution to the world cinema at the 31 International Cinematographers Film Festival "Brothers Manaki" is awarded to recognize Daryl Hannah for her contribution to the film art, but she also deserves to be praised for her contribution to all-important concerns about environmentalism, protection of bio-diversity, sustainable living and human rights of marginalized groups.
