Legendary actress Isabella Rossellini will receive the Dallas STAR award from the Dallas Film Society on November 20 at their 6th annual The Art of Film gala. Rossellini is descended from film royalty — her parents are Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman — and has an accomplished career in cinema all her own. Best known for her leading role in “Blue Velvet,” the actress also has notable film appearances in “Wild at Heart,” “Death Becomes Her,” “Infamous,” “Two Lovers” and “Enemy.” 

Recently, she has been writing, directing and starring in a collection of short films called “Green Porno,” which airs on the Sundance channel.

The Art of Film event will feature a moderated conversation with Rossellini, as well as a dinner and a collection of 20 works of art from Andy Warhol. Proceeds from the event will benefit programming for the Dallas Film Society.
