Robin Wright and Agnes Varda will be honored at the Marrakech Film Festival, with both women set to receive the fest’s Gold Star career honor.
Wright will play the president on Netflix’s final season of House of Cards, which drops Nov. 6. The Marrakech award will recognize her film and television work, including The Princess Bride and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Organizers also cited her efforts for charitable organizations in the Congo.
“I’m thrilled to be visiting the country of Morocco and grateful to be given this opportunity to experience the Moroccan culture,” the actress said of her upcoming visit to the festival.
Legendary French New Wave director Varda will also receive the fest’s Gold Star prize for her work. The 90-year-old filmmaker received her first Oscar nomination for Faces, Places just last year.
As previously announced, Robert De Niro also will be on hand for a career honor, and The Lost City of Z director James Gray will serve as head of the jury.
The Marrakech Film Festival is set to run Nov. 30-Dec. 8.
