Washington (ANI): Robert Redford is set to receive Peter J. Owens
Award at the upcoming 52nd in April (09). The Owens Award, named
after the longtime arts patron, philanthropist and Film Society
board member, honours an actor whose work exemplifies "brilliance,
independence and integrity," reports Contactmusic.
The 72-year-old will also be feted in a public tribute, where
he'll be interviewed by Sharon Stone's ex-husband Phil Bronstein,
the editor-at-large of the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper. The
film festival will also feature the world premiere screening of the
restoration of Redford's Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, in
which he starred alongside the late Paul Newman.
