Guests of Honour

Roland Emmerich is one of Hollywood’s most successful directors, producers and screenwriters, whose films – including INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996), STARGATE (1994), GODZILLA (1998), THE PATRIOT (2000), THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (2004) and WHITE HOUSE DOWN (2013) – have taken in more than $4 billion worldwide. In his native Germany, Roland’s career began when his student project DAS ARCHE NOAH PRINZIP (1984), played in competition at the Berlin Film Festival. He subsequently set up Centropolis Entertainment in 1985 and under this banner, he has produced and directed more than 20 feature films. While he is known for his blockbuster films, Emmerich is equally comfortable directing more personal projects such as ANONYMOUS (2011) and STONEWALL (2015). Emmerich is a campaigner and contributor for various charities and projects including, the Gay and Lesbian Education Network (GLSEN), Global Green and American Red Cross. His latest feature, MIDWAY is slated to be released on November 8, 2019.

Roland Emmerich will collect the ZFF’s Golden Eye on Sunday, September 29 at the screening of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW.
