London Film Festival to Honour Ralph Fiennes

The BFI 52nd London Film Festival has announced that Ralph Fiennes will receive The Variety UK Achievement in Film Award on Monday 27 October at BFI Southbank.

The BFI said: "The award celebrates Fiennes' artistic contribution to the UK film industry and international cinema. Ever since his TV lead-role debut portraying T.E. Lawrence in A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia, Fiennes has established himself an unassailable reputation for dedication to his craft, brutal honesty and searing power."

"The actor has carried this through two decades of work, whether on the big screen or the stage, with a series of memorable performances in films ranging from Anthony Minghella's The English Patient to Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List and David Cronenberg's Spider. Most recently, Fiennes has excelled in Martin McDonagh's In Bruges and Saul Dibb's The Duchess, not to mention his role as Harry Potter's arch-nemesis Voldemort in the blockbusting series."

Tickets for the BFI festival go on sale to the public on Saturday 27 September 2008.

Other recently announced additions to the Festival programme include the UK premieres of Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna and Jesús Ponce's Lazy Days (Dejate caer).

Tickets are available online or by telephone on 020 7928 3232.
