International artistic excellence was honored at the fourth annual French Riviera FilmFestival, held from May 20 – 21, 2022, at Eden Hotel & Spa. Award-winning Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui received a Special Industry Excellence Award at the VIP opening reception of the festival held on May 20 at Bel-Air Fine Art Gallery. The award was presented by Emmy-winning actor Vincent De Paul.

 

Well known for his work in movies like Manto, Raman Raghav, Gangs of Wasseypur (Duology), Lunchbox, and TV series like Sacred Games and McMafia, Siddiqui graced the Cannes red carpet as part of the Indian government’s initiative to celebrate the diversity in art that India possesses. Recently, it was announced that he will play the lead in the new film Laxman Lopez, by director Roberto Girault, making him one of the first lead protagonists of Indian origin cast in a Hollywood film.

 

A special Lifetime Achievement award was also presented to Polish director Jerzy Skolimowksi at the opening ceremony, which was accepted by EO executive producer Eileen Tasca.  Directed by Skolimowski, EO is part of the official Cannes Film Festival  2022 competition.
