What is the Golden Icon Award?

The Golden Icon Award is presented at the Zurich Film Festival in appreciation of an individual who has had a lasting impact on cinema through their acting and has become a generational icon. Those in attendance get to see the stars up close as they receive the Golden Icon Award. Previous winners include Judi Dench, Glenn Close, Hugh Grant, Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sean Penn. The presentation of the Golden Icon Award is one of the major highlights of the ZFF.

 Here you can experience the flair of great cinema, glamour and great actors up close.
