Arnold Schwarzenegger to Receive Zurich Film Festival Award

LONDON — The Zurich Film Festival will honor Arnold Schwarzenegger with its Golden Icon Award, which is the event’s top trophy. Schwarzenegger will receive the award, which recognizes the lifetime achievements of an actor or actress, on Sept. 30.

Schwarzenegger also will present his latest film, “Maggie,” and discuss his body of work at a workshop presented within the public ZFF Masters series.

“We are extraordinarily proud to welcome Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of Hollywood’s most iconic legends, to Zurich and are delighted that he will share his films and stories with our public,” said the festival’s artistic director Karl Spoerri.

“Arnold has had a transformative career that no one in Hollywood can match and established himself as a global brand, even beyond the box office. We are honored to present him with our Golden Icon award at this year’s festival.”

As well as his career as an actor, the award recognizes his public service as California’s 38th Governor.

A statement from the festival read: “As governor, Schwarzenegger worked with leaders of both major political parties to address the greatest challenges facing the state in a bold and historic manner. His leadership put California at the forefront of the nation in addressing climate change, pushing for the development of renewable energies, rebuilding critical infrastructure, investing in stem cell research, and putting in place health care and political reforms.”

The festival runs Sept. 24-Oct. 4.
