Danny Glover will receive the Montreal International Black Film Festival's 2013 Humanitarian Award on the festival's opening night, Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at Cinéma Impérial. 

The MIBFF is giving Glover this award “for his amazing contributions as an activist and humanitarian as well as for his incredible selfless and dedicated efforts in addressing injustice and inequality in the world. His constant fight for human rights has allowed people from around the world to believe, hope, break down barriers and achieve great things.

"It is a tremendous honour and a real privilege for all of us to welcome the living legend, Danny Glover, to Montreal and to honour him with the Montreal International Black Film Festival's 2013 Humanitarian Award. By giving him this Award, we hope to shed light on his great humanitarian work and also share his great legacy to a whole new generation that so desperately needs to be inspired. It is also an excellent way for us to recognize the true value of his spirit that goes far beyond the Award-winning movie star everyone has come to know," said Fabienne Colas, president and founder of the MIBFF.

The 2012 Montreal International Black Film Festival Humanitarian Award was given to legendary singer, actor and activist Harry Belafonte.

This year, the MIBIFF runs from September 18 to 29, 2013.
