Bogdanovich to receive Lifetime Achievement Award at Festival

Peter Bogdanovich, the son of immigrants who fled Nazi Germany and became an Academy Award-nominated director, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 18th annual Sedona International Film Festival, from Feb. 18-26.

The Festival will officially open with two of Bogdonavich's most important films: The Last Picture Show, which earned eight Oscar nominations in 1971, including for Best Director, and won two for Cloris Leachman (Best Supporting Actress) and Ben Johnson (Best Supporting Actor); and They All Laughed, a controversial film released in 1981 that was Audrey Hepburn's final starring role in a theatrically released motion picture and starred Dorothy Stratten, who was tragically murdered by her estranged husband before the film was released.

The Last Picture Show, which also starred then-unknowns Sybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges and Ellen Burstyn, in addition to Leachman, was named to the National Film Registry in 1998 by the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress, an honor awarded only to those films considered among the most culturally significant.

Bogdanovich, 72, will be recognized at a special awards ceremony on opening preview night, Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Sedona Performing Arts Center following The Last Picture Show, which will be screened that evening at 7 p.m. They All Laughed will be shown on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. followed by a Q&A discussion with Bogdanovich and Glenn Scarpelli, who also stars in the film.

Bogdanovich's other films include What's Up Doc? (1972), Paper Moon (1973), Mask (1985), Noises Off (1992), and The Cat's Meow (2004).He also directed an ABC Special, "The Mystery of Natalie Wood" (2004), and a docudrama about player Pete Rose, "Hustle" (2004).
