CIFF is honoring the legend of the screen and stage.
Actor and director Ralph Fiennes is being honored at the 40th annual Cairo International Film Festival. Fiennes is to be the 2018 recipient of the Faten Hamama Outstanding Achievement Award.
Fiennes's career is full of celebrated roles in films such as The Grand Budapest Hotel, The English Patient, Schindler's List, and perhaps the most iconic as Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise. Fiennes has also directed Coriolanus, The Invisible Woman, and his upcoming movie The White Crow coming out next month.
The actor/director will be in attendance at the Middle East and North African premiere of The White Crow at the CIFF, where fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with him as a part of “Cairo Industry Days” at an in-conversation event.
