Audrey Hepburn will receive the USA Film Festival’s 1991 Master Screen Artist Award. The annual award will be presented at a black-tie tribute March 2 at the Grand Kempinski Hotel (preceding a similar tribute April 22 by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York).
The event will include a film tribute to the actress along with a champagne reception and dinner, says fest general manager Ann Alexander. Event will benefit both the festival’s year-round programs and operation and the United States Committee for Unicef.
The festival is celebrating its 21st anniversary. The Master Screen Artist Award was established in 1974 as an annual event. Previous recipients, who have appeared at their tributes, include Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Kirk Douglas, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Duvall, Jack Lemmon, James Stewart and Greer Garson.
