Variety to Honor Patrick Stewart at Hamptons Film Festival

Patrick Stewart will be the recipient of the Variety creative impact in acting award at the 25th annual Hamptons International Film Festival. Stewart will also participate in “A Conversation With,” one of HIFF’s signature programs, on Oct. 7 at East Hampton Middle School. He will be presented with the award at the conversation by Steven Gaydos, vice president and executive editor of Variety. The Hamptons Film Festival will take place over Columbus Day Weekend — Oct. 5 to Oct. 9.

“The Hamptons International Film Festival is proud to honor Patrick Stewart at our 25th anniversary. He is one of the most renowned and talented actors in the industry. He has shown incredible versatility with different roles throughout his career in film, television, and on stage,” said Anne Chaisson, executive director of the Hamptons International Film Festival. “We are honored to partner with Variety to celebrate such a brilliant artist.”

Stewart is one of the most acclaimed performers working today, with numerous and varied roles on both stage and screen, earning Golden Globe, SAG, Emmy, and Tony Award nominations. Earlier this year, Stewart starred as Professor Charles Xavier in the latest X-Men epic, “Logan,” reprising a role he originated in the first installment of the franchise in 2000 and earning some of the best reviews of his career. Though he is perhaps best known from his years on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” Stewart’s impressive list of credits spans more than 40 years and countless memorable roles, including recent acclaimed performances in “Green Room,” “Match,” and the Starz comedy “Blunt Talk.” Stewart is a three-time Olivier Award winner and an honorary associate artist with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 2001, Queen Elizabeth conferred on Stewart the order of the Officer of the British Empire, and in 2010, he received a knighthood for his services to drama. His philanthropic efforts include his longtime support of Amnesty International, and his role as a patron of both Refuge and Combat Stress in the U.K.

“Internationally known, respected, and beloved for his work on screens and stages of all sizes, Sir Patrick’s work in James Mangold’s ‘Logan’ this year ranks with his best, and provides a wonderful opportunity to revisit Stewart’s admirable and still-thriving body of work,” Gaydos said.

Anniversary passes and packages, and individual tickets are currently on sale. For further information please visit, http://hamptonsfilmfest.org/.
