Zurich Film Festival to Honor Michael Shamberg with Career Achievement Award

Michael Shamberg (“Erin Brockovich,” “Pulp Fiction”) will be the recipient of the Zurich Film Festival’s Golden Eye award for lifetime achievement in cinema at this year’s fest, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in September.

The tribute to the two-time Oscar nominee will take place on Friday, September 26. The Shamberg and Stacey Sher-produced dramedy “Wish I Was Here,” starring Zach Braff and Kate Hudson, will also screen in the Gala Premieres section of the Festival, along with “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” another Shamberg and Sher pic.

“We are honored to welcome Michael Shamberg, one of the most innovative producers in contemporary Hollywood, to Zurich and are delighted that he will share two of his latest films with our audience,” said Karl Spoerri and Nadja Schildknecht, Zurich Film Festival co-directors.

In addition to his catalog of films, which include “Garden State,” “Along Came Polly” and Oscar-winning “Gattaca,” Shamberg has also worked in television as a producer on “Reno 911,” and is currently in pre-production on AMC’s “Badlands.”

Shamberg also serves as an adviser to BuzzFeed Motion Pictures, producing online video.
