Fest honors Rampling and Wai

Thesps to be recognized at Stockholm film fest

While Quentin Tarantino helped increase the SIFF’s profile, he is hardly the only celeb to appear there. Over the years, David Lynch, Elia Kazan, Lauren Bacall, David Cronenberg and Gena Rowlands have also made the trek, many of them honored with either a Visionary Award or a lifetime achievement award. This year’s recipients are Wong Kar Wai and Charlotte Rampling.

“They are two of my favorites,” says fest topper Git Scheynius. “And since many of the big names usually are from the United States, it’s great to have a European actress and an Asian director this year.”
