Julie Andrews will be honored for her career at the 25th annual Hamptons International Film Festival later this year (17).
The Mary Poppins star will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award on 7 October (17) following the screening of her Oscar-winning film Victor/Victoria. After the screening, Andrews will sit for a conversation with HIFF co-chairman Alec Baldwin.
“Julie Andrews is a true icon and captured the hearts and imaginations of children and adults alike the moment she first appeared on screen in Mary Poppins,” Baldwin says. “Since then she has never ceased to amaze and stands as a true role model and inspiration. We are proud to honor her at the festival and celebrate her incredible career.”
The festival runs from 5 to 9 October (17).
Past recipients of the accolade include Richard Gere.
