FRANCES MCDORMAND TO RECEIVE VENICE TRIBUTE


In a career already full of well-deserved honours, Frances McDormand is about to receive one of her most significant: the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award from the Venice Film Festival. The special award is to be bestowed upon the actor, who was the shared recipient of a Special Volpi Cup at the fest 21 years ago along with her costars in Robert Altman's Short Cuts, on the 1st of September. This will be followed immediately by a screening of Oscar-nominated director Lisa Cholodenko's HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge, in which McDormand stars.
