“The Hamptons International Film Festival is proud to honor Patrick Stewart at our 25th anniversary. He is one of the most renowned and talented actors in the industry. He has shown incredible versatility with different roles throughout his career in film, television and on stage,” said Anne Chaisson, Executive Director of the Hamptons International Film Festival. “We are honored to partner with Variety to celebrate such a brilliant artist.”

Patrick Stewart is one of the most acclaimed and beloved performers working today, with numerous and varied roles on both stage and screen, earning Golden Globe, SAG, Emmy®, and Tony® Award nominations. Earlier this year, Stewart starred as ‘Professor Charles Xavier’ in the latest X-Men epic LOGAN, reprising a role he originated in the first installment of the franchise in 2000 and earning some of the best reviews of his career.

Though he is perhaps best known from his years on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stewart’s impressive list of credits spans more than 40 years and countless memorable roles, including recent acclaimed performances in GREEN ROOM, MATCH and the Starz comedy Blunt Talk.

Stewart is a three-time Olivier Award winner and an Honorary Associate Artist with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 2001, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II conferred on Stewart the order of the Officer of the British Empire (O.B.E.), and in 2010, he received a knighthood for his services to Drama. His philanthropic efforts include his longtime support of Amnesty International and his role as a Patron of both Refuge and Combat Stress in the UK.

“Internationally known, respected and beloved for his work on screens and stages of all sizes, Sir Patrick’s work in James Mangold’s LOGAN this year ranks with his best and provides a wonderful opportunity to revisit Stewart’s admirable and still-thriving body of work,” said Steven Gaydos.
