A Tribut to ... Award goes to Paul Haggis

06. September 2011

Paul Haggis made a name for himself, not only in his primary role as a screenwriter, but also as a director. He was closely involved in two subsequent Oscar winners: in 2005 as the screenwriter of the boxing film MILLION DOLLAR BABY, and in the following year as author and director of the anthology film CRASH. Haggis will receive the festival’s A Tribute To... Award on the October 1 Award Night at the Zurich Opera House. He will also give a public master class on Saturday, October 1 (Filmpodium, 15:00).
