Hackford will also be honored the same evening with an Ischia Legend Award.

As previously announced, Ischia this year will also pay tribute to Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos and Academy of Motion Picture Arts& Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

Antonio Banderas will be on hand to be receive an Ischia nod on July 12, and on the same evening Italian director Matteo Garrone will receive an Ischia Fantasy Award for his English-language Salma Hayek-starrer “The Tale of Tales,” which world-preemed in Cannes.

Nicolas Winding Refn (“Only God Forgives”) will be honored as European Director of the Year.

The Ischia fest is a sister event to Capri Hollywood. Both are conceived as bridge-building meets between Hollywood and the Italian and European film industries where attendees can network informally while enjoying splendid locations and luxurious accommodations.
