Zoe Saldana, Clifton Collins Jr to Receive SF Film Festival's Midnight Awards
The San Francisco Film Festival's fourth annual Midnight Awards will be presented Saturday night at the W Hotel, with Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) and Clifton Collins Jr (Star Trek, TV's The Event) on hand to receive the honors. The awards presentation is open to the public, and will be fashioned after the format of a late-night talk show, with New York Times bestselling author Beth Lisick playing Johnny Carson and the Darren Johnston Trio providing live musical accompaniment.
The Midnight Awards were created in 2007 to honor young actors who have made "outstanding contributions to independent and Hollywood cinema and bring intelligence, talent and depth of character to their roles." Previous recipients of the awards include Evan Rachel Wood, Rose McGowan, Jason Lee and Daly City's Sam Rockwell.
Tickets are $40 for Midnight Club members, $45 for San Francisco Film Society members and $50 for the general public. For tickets and information, click here.
