The Maine International Film Festival announced Monday that it will honor actor Malcolm McDowell, 67, with its annual Mid-Life Achievement Award.
MIFF will celebrate the Golden Globe-nominated actor’s career with a retrospective of his work, including screenings of “A Clockwork Orange,” “Never Apologize” and “Assassin of the Tsar.” The award will be presented Saturday, July 16, with a showing of “O Lucky Man!” at Given Auditorium on the Colby College campus.
“We are thrilled to honor Malcolm McDowell with the Mid-Life Achievement Award,” said MIFF director Shannon Haines in a press release. “Malcolm is a truly brilliant actor with a career that spans over four decades and well over 100 films. We can’t wait to welcome him to MIFF.”
Past Mid-Life Achievement recipients include Terrence Malick (“The Thin Red Line,” “The Tree of Life”), Walter Hill (“The Warriors”), Jonathan Demme (“Silence of the Lambs”), Ed Harris (“Empire Falls,” “Appaloosa”) and Lili Taylor (“High Fidelity”).
The festival, in its 14th year, will be held July 15-24 at Railroad Square Cinema in Waterville and Given Auditorium.
