Competition: Golden Icon Award

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 Sharon Stone, 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.


When does the Golden Icon Award take place?

The Golden Icon Award takes place during the Zurich Film Festival. The date is announced about three weeks before the festival starts. The deadline for entries is 21 August 2022. Winners will be notified by e-mail by beginning of September 2022. 


How can you attend the Golden Icon Award?

Tickets usually go on sale about ten days before the festival begins. The Golden Icon Award sells out very quickly. Take part in our draw and with a little luck you can secure two tickets – for you and your companion. To do this, you need to fill out the competition form and answer the question.
