EFA Honours Bruno Ganz
At the 23rd European Film Awards this year, the European Film Academy (EFA) will honour Swiss actor Bruno Ganz - whether as an angel in Wings of Desire (1987) by Wim Wenders, in the Italian comedy Bread & Tulips (2000) by Silvio Soldini, or playing Adolf Hitler in Oliver Hirschbiegel's The Downfall (2004), Bruno Ganz has lent his face to some of cinema's most unforgettable moments.
Together with actress Iris Berben, Ganz was elected President of the German Film Academy in 2010.
The European Film Academy takes great pleasure in presenting Bruno Ganz with the European Film Academy Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding and dedicated body of work.
Bruno Ganz will be an honorary guest at the 23rd European Film Awards Ceremony on 4 December 2010 in Tallinn.
The European Film Awards 2010 are presented by the European Film Academy e.V. and EFA Productions gGmbH with the support of European Capital of Culture Tallinn 2011, Estonian Ministry of Culture, the City of Tallinn, Estonian Cultural Endowment, Enterprise Estonia, Estonian Public Broadcasting, Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and BDG.
