Ewan McGregor to receive the Donostia Award at the 60th San Sebastian Fest

The 60th edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival will bestow a Donostia Award this year on actor Ewan McGregor in a tribute to his career. Often hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation, Ewan McGregor consistently captivates audiences with a diverse line-up of roles across a multitude of genres, styles and scope.

Born in Perth, Scotland, McGregor's career has been highlighted by a continuous string of bold and daring performances, from his breakthrough role as the heroin-addicted Mark Renton in Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting, to the legendary Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars saga, to starring opposite Nicole Kidman in the musical Moulin Rouge. His diverse film credits include: Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer, opposite Pierce Brosnan; Ron Howard's Angels and Demons with Tom Hanks; the comedy I Love You Phillip Morris opposite Jim Carrey; Deception, also starring Michelle Williams and Hugh Jackman; Woody Allen's Cassandra's Dream; Amelia, starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere; Michael Bay's The Island with Scarlett Johansson; Tim Burton's Big Fish alongside Albert Finney, Jessica Lange and Danny DeVito; Young Adam with Peter Mullan and Tilda Swinton, for which he received a London Film Critics Circle Awards nomination; Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down; Little Voice, alongside Michael Caine; and the glam rock film by Todd Haynes, Velvet Goldmine.

The actor was most recently seen starring in Beginners, opposite Christopher Plummer, a film which won for Best Ensemble Cast at the 2011 Gotham Film Awards. McGregor also garnered terrific acclaim for his recent performance in Lasse Hallström's moving film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen alongside Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas.

McGregor received critical acclaim for his role in Danny Boyle's A Life Less Ordinary, in which he won the Best British Actor Award at the Empire Movie Awards. For his role in Shallow Grave, McGregor was honored with the Hitchcock D'Argent Best Actor Award. He was also lauded by critics with an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Guest Actor for his episodic role in the CBS television series ER titled, "The Long Way Round."

The actor will present his latest film, "The Impossible", directed by Juan Antonio Bayona

McGregor stars opposite Naomi Watts in The Impossible, a drama based on a true story of one family's terrifying account of the 2004 tsunami and the compelling events as they fought to survive in the face of disaster. Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, McGregor will bring to life the emotional journey of a husband and father vacationing with his family in Thailand when one of the most devastating catastrophes of our time took thousands of lives. The film, produced by Telecinco Cinema and Apaches and distributed by Warner Bros., is set for release in Spain in 11th October and worldwide in December/January distributed by Summit. Following The Impossible, McGregor will star in Universal's Jack the Giant Killer, a modern take on the popular fable, "Jack and the Beanstalk," directed by Bryan Singer. The film is set for release in March 2013.


The Donostia Award presentation ceremony will take place on 27th September at Kursaal Auditorium. The ceremony will be followed by the European premiere of The Impossible.
