Robert Redford is to be honoured with the Peter J. Owens Award at the upcoming 52nd San Francisco International Film Festival in April (09).
The Owens Award, named for the longtime San Francisco art benefactor, honours actors whose work "exemplifies brilliance, independence and integrity".
Redford will also be feted in a public tribute, where he'll be interviewed by Sharon Stone's ex-husband Phil Bronstein, the editor-at-large of the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.
The film festival will also feature the world premiere screening of the restoration of Redford's Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, in which he starred alongside the late Paul Newman.
