SLO Film Festival announces 2018 King Vidor Award honoree

Posted: Updated:

Actress Pam Grier will receive the King Vidor Award at the 2018 San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.

"Pam Grier is the iconic feminine face of urban cinema in the 70s. She inspired that genre's mainstream success, and her presence has long served as a muse and inspiration for many actors and filmmakers that followed, most notably Quentin Tarantino's classic noir, JACKIE BROWN. It will be a thrill to celebrate a truly remarkable career and have her on hand at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival to offer her unique and colorful perspective on the journey she has seen film take from FOXY BROWN to today," said Wendy Eidson, SLO Film Fest Director.

The King Vidor Award presentation will take place on Saturday, March 17 at the Fremont Theatre in San Luis Obispo.

The SLO Film Fest takes place March 13-18 at various theaters around San Luis Obispo County.
