American actress Kristen Stewart will be awarded the Golden Eye at the upcoming Zurich Film Festival. The festival will take place from September 26 to October 6, with Oliver Stone leading a jury comprising of Ciro Guerra, Laura Bispuri, Sebastian Koch, and Tiziana Soudani.
Although she could have been involved in blockbuster movies after the 'Twilight' series, Stewart has consistently opted for artistically engaged indie films by writers such as Walter Salles, Olivier Assayas, and Ang Lee,` said ZFF co-directors Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri in the praise of Kristen Stewart.
They further added: `She succeeded the difficult balancing act between mainstream and arthouse in an exemplary way. With her fearless portrayal of Jean Seberg, she once again proves to be one of the most versatile actresses of our generation.`
Stewart is in news for her portrayal of Jean Seberg in Benedict Andrews' 'Seberg.' Stewart plays Jean Seberg, an iconic figure of the French New Wave who came under F.B.I's scrutiny with her associations with civil rights movements. She will also be seen in the upcoming reboot of 'Charlie's Angels' and underwater sci-fi thriller 'Underwater'.
