Christopher Plummer will be honored for his lengthy and prestigious career at the upcoming 42nd annual Film Fest Gent in Belgium with the Joseph Plateau Honorary Award. Meant to celebrate those who have made a special contribution to the art of filmmaking, the award seems a perfect fit for Plummer, who has appeared in films as varied as “The Sound of Music,” “Beginners” and “A Beautiful Mind.” 

“If there is one actor deserving of the Joseph Plateau Award, then it is this immensely versatile and talented Canadian icon,” says Patrick Duynslaegher, the festival’s artistic director.

Film Fest Gent will also screen Atom Egoyan’s latest drama “Remember,” which features Plummer’s turn as a vigilante whose own battle with dementia threatens to upend his search for justice. 

The festival will run from October 13-24. For more information, visit their official website
