Song Kang-ho to Be Honored for Excellence in Acting at Locarno Film Festival

2019/05/20 | Permalink | Source

Actor Song Kang-ho will be honored with an award given to actors "who have followed significant, courageous paths" in the cinema industry at this year's Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.

The festival's organizers said on Friday that Song was chosen to receive the Excellence Award, which celebrates internationally acclaimed actors who have enriched the cinema with their work and talent. He will be the first Asian actor to win the award.

"A many-faceted actor, he is a peerless interpreter of the variety and intensity of emotions generated by Korean cinema, at ease in anything from drama to hard-boiled thriller", artistic director Lili Hinstin said in a press release.

The annual event, in its 72nd year, will kick off on Aug. 7 and run until Aug. 17 in the southern Swiss town. Song will attend an award ceremony on Aug. 12 and a panel discussion for festival fans the next day.
