The Sarajevo Film Festival has announced that Danny Glover will curate this year’s Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award - named after the British actress who starred in several Mike Leigh films and who died in 2002. 

Glover will attend the festival, which runs from August 16-24, and will present the winner of the award - aimed at giving new voices, new perspectives and visions a chance to be seen and heard.

Over the past nine years the foundation has appointed a curator, selected from Cartlidge’s friends and colleagues, who in turn chooses a recipient for the annual award.

The recipient is a new cinematic voice whose work, in some way, embodies her “integrity of spirit and commitment to independent film.” 

The recipient is presented with the cash award at a special red carpet gala at the Sarajevo Film Festival.

Past winners include:

  • Diana El Jeiroudi and Orwa Nyrabia (2012, curator: Jeremy Irons)
  • Hala Lotfy (2011, Charlotte Rampling)
  • Ciné Institute Haiti (2010, Annie Nocenti)
  • Juanita Wilson (2009, Stellan Skarsgard)
  • Faruk Šabanović (2008, Danis Tanović)
  • Cary Fukunaga (2007, John Lyons)
  • Eyas Salman (2006, Simon McBurney and Juergen Teller)
  • Amy Neil (2005, Emily Watson)
  • Greg Hall (2004, Mike Leigh).
