The 13th annual Savannah Film Festival, hosted by SCAD, presented Liam Neeson with the Achievement in Cinema Award on November 2, 2010.

“I’m humbled and embarrassed but it’s lovely to be here at this extraordinary festival,” said Neeson upon acceptance of his award. “I’m the luckiest man in the friggin’ world.” He dedicated the award to the crews he’s worked with on his sets.  “They inspire me and I accept this award for them.  They are the mainstay, the people who make us look and feel good.”

The 13th annual Savannah Film Festival is presenting special screenings of the films Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours,” Doug Liman’s “Fair Game,” Mike Leigh’s “Another Year,” Ed Burns’ “Nice Guy Johnny,” Sam Rockwell’s “Conviction,” Nigel Cole’s “Made in Dagenham” and Derek Cianfrance’s “Blue Valentine,” among others.
