Cate Blanchett to Receive BFI Honor

Cate Blanchett to Receive BFI Honor

On Saturday, October 17, at the BFI London Film Festival awards ceremony, Cate Blanchett will receive the BFI Fellowship. The prize will be bestowed the same night as the UK premiere of "Truth," starring Blanchett as onetime "60 Minutes" producer Mary Mapes and Robert Redford as Dan Rather.

"Carol," starring Blanchett as one half of a lesbian love affair opposite Rooney Mara, also screens at the festival this year following a rapturous premiere at Cannes, and a likely North American debut in Telluride.

Previous BFI Fellowships include Stephen Frears, Sir Christopher Lee, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter. Al Pacino and Mel Brooks have also received BFI Fellowships.
