Sharon Stone
Sharon Stone (Zurich Film Festival)

Actress Sharon Stone will be honored for her acting career at the 17th Zurich Film Festival with the Festival’s highest accolade, the Golden Icon Award. Sharon Stone will be in Zurich to accept the award in person on Saturday, September 25. The award ceremony will be followed by a screening of Martin Scorsese’s thriller Casino, which earned the actress an Oscar nomination. Sharon Stone will also hold a ZFF Masters where she will offer the public insight into her creative process and remarkable career.

“Sharon Stone is a true icon of the seventh art,” explains Christian Jungen, Artistic Director of the Zurich Film Festival. “She is a woman that Hitchcock would have loved. Her distinguishing qualities include an irresistible charm, a great human depth, the talent to play a whole range of roles and the ability to captivate an audience like no other. At a time when the film business was dominated by men, she stood her ground to fight against sexism and in doing so became a major role model for many women in the film business.”

Sharon Stone is the fifth actress in a row to receive the Golden Icon Award.

“It is an honor to engage with the global community and celebrate the profound depth of our art,” says Stone about receiving the Golden Icon Award. “I am thrilled to be recognized in this capacity.”

Previous recipients of the Golden Icon Award include Juliette Binoche, Cate Blanchett, Glenn Close, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere and Sean Penn.
