CHARLESTON (AP) — Oscar-winning actor Gene Hackman's career will be the focus of the Embarras Valley Film Festival in the eastern Illinois town of Charleston.
The festival will feature five Hackman movies: “Bonnie and Clyde,” ‘'Unforgiven,“ ‘'The Royal Tenenbaums,” ‘'Hoosiers“ and ”The French Connection.“ Events start Saturday with a film workshop for middle school children. The festival, ”The Versatile Gene Hackman," runs Nov. 1 through 3 at the Doudna Fine Arts Center.
The 82-year-old actor has won two Academy Awards and nominated for three others over a career that has spanned five decades. He grew up in Danville.
The festival is a partnership between Eastern Illinois University and the local community. All events are free and open to the public. University officials say Hackman is not scheduled to attend.
