Depardieu to receive the Douglas Sirk award in Hamburg

The French actor Gérard Depardieu will receive this year’s Douglas Sirk award. This renowned award is bestowed by Filmfest Hamburg each year to honour a person for their achievements for film culture.
Albert Wiederspiel: “The choice of Gérard Depardieu for the Douglas Sirk award is not a decision for a French actor. Rather, it is the decision for one of the greatest actors of our time. Although steeped in a very French tradition, Gérard Depardieu has also long been a star around the world for a long time.”
Gérard Depardieu (born 1948) has played in over 150 films, ranging from the
cineastically high-class like “The Last Metro” or “Choice of Arms” (both 1980), or the drama „1900“ (1976) up to comedies like „ My Father the Hero“ (1991). Depardieu played the revolutionary “Danton” (1983), the artist Auguste Rodin in “Camille Claudel“ (1988), won a Golden Globe for his role as French immigrant Georges in “Green Card” (1990) and an Oscar nomination as long-nosed poet “Cyrano de Bergerac” and inspired millions around the world as Obelix in the Asterix- series („Asterix & Obelix vs. Caesar“,1998, and „Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra“,2000).

The Douglas Sirk award will be presented on 10 October 2006 at 7 p.m. in the
CinemaxX 1 prior to the premiere of QUAND J’ ÉTAIS CHANTEUR which is attended
by Gérard Depardieu und director Xavier Giannoli.

The 14th Filmfest Hamburg runs from 5-12 October 2006 in the following cinemas:
UFA-Palast Grindel, CinemaxX Dammtor, Abaton, 3001, and Metropolis.
