Harrison Ford has had one of the most remarkable careers of any actor in cinema, helping to propel two of the greatest movie franchises by bringing to life iconic roles that have become just as famous as the films themselves,” said festival co-directors Karl Spoerri and Nadja Schildknecht.  “Few actors have commanded the leading man role that Harrison Ford has embodied throughout his career, and continues to showcase in every new project. We are honored to present him with our Golden Eye at this year’s Festival.”

The iconic thesp, whose career spans over 40 years and includes such hit franchises as “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones,” was also honored at this year’s Cinema Con where he received a Lifetime Achievement tribute.
