Kenneth Branagh to Be Honored at Camerimage
Kenneth Branagh will receive two awards at the 25th Camerimage international cinematography festival.
Next month in Bydgoszcz, Poland, Branagh will accept the Krzysztof Kieślowski Award, a distinction presented to actors and actresses who contribute to the art of filmmaking, named as a tribute to one of the festival's early patrons. Additionally, he will accept the Camerimage Cinematographer-Director Duo Award with his longtime collaborator Haris Zambarloukos.
Both filmmakers will also meet the audience on Camerimage Opening Night and present their latest collaboration, Murder on the Orient Express, based on the Agatha Christie novel of the same name.
They have previously teamed on Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and the live-action version of Cinderella. Next, the pair will make family adventure Artemis Fowl.
Branagh holds the distinction of being the first artist ever to be nominated for an Academy Award in five different categories: best director (Henry V), best actor in a leading role (Henry V), best short film, live action (Swan Song), best writing, screenplay based on material previously produced or published (Hamlet), and best performance by an actor in a supporting role (My Week with Marilyn).
His credits as an actor and/or director also include Much Ado About Nothing, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,and Dunkirk.
