Jane Fonda will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Traverse City Film Festival. The honor will be presented to Fonda during the festival, which runs July 31 to August 5 in Traverse City, Michigan. The fest was founded by filmmaker Michael Moore.
“I can think of no other artist who has given more to her country,” said Moore. “What an honor for our festival audience to welcome and to be inspired by the work of this American Icon. Her voice is as needed today as much as ever.”
Fonda’s work will be an integral part of the fest thanks to a 40th anniversary screening of Coming Home, a screening of Julia and a free nighttime screening on Nine to Five (it will be projected on a 65-foot screen near the shores of Lake Michigan).
Tickets for the Traverse City Film Festival go on sale July 21.
