Veteran actress Vanessa Redgrave will receive the highest honour at this year's (10) Orange British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTAS) Film Awards.
The British Oscar-winner will be presented with the Academy Fellowship for her contribution to the movie industry at the ceremony in London on 21 February (10).
Redgrave says, "I'm truly delighted, it's such an honour to be recognised in this way. Looking through the list of past recipients shows what a wonderful accolade this is, and the fact that Alfred Hitchcock was the very first recipient makes it even more special, as my father made his first film with him."
Iconic filmmaker Hitchcock was handed the first Fellowship in 1971. Since then industry legends including Steven Spielberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Sir Michael Caine and Dame Judi Dench have all been recipients of the award.
