Entertainment Culture


Legendary American actor and director Robert Redford is set to receive a honourary Cesar award, which is France's equivalent of the Oscars.

He will be honoured at the 44th annual Cesar ceremony, which will take place on February 22, in Paris, reported People magazine.

Speaking about it, Alain Terzian, the president of the Academy of Arts and Techniques of Cinema said, "An iconic actor, an exceptional director, a passionate producer, founder and president of Sundance, the most revered festival of independent films in the world, Robert Redford has left his mark through all his endeavors in the film world."

Terzian further praised Redford's career as an actor, filmmaker and philanthropist in a statement.

He added that many of Robert films, with him in front or behind the camera, have now become classics. "Rare are the careers which have had such a lasting impact on the History of Cinema," said Terzian, citing Redford's Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning film 'Ordinary People,' which marked his directorial debut; as well as 'Barefoot in the Park,' 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' 'The Candidate,' 'The Way We Were,' and 'Out of Africa.'

Redford, who began his acting career on Broadway in the play 'Tall Story' in 1959, was previously honoured with the Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award.
