Academy Award®-winning actress Nicole Kidman has established a remarkable career composed of equal parts luminous Hollywood glamour and genuine dramatic talent. She has achieved worldwide recognition through her work in To Die For, Eyes Wide Shut, The Others, Moulin Rouge!, Cold Mountain, and many others, winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for her powerful work in The Hours. In TV, she received an Emmy® nomination for her portrayal of Martha Gellhorn in HBO’s Hemingway and Gellhorn. She continues to challenge herself as a risk-taking performer and contributes a beautifully nuanced supporting turn as the mother of an adopted boy in her latest film, LION.

OUR TRIBUTE PROGRAM will feature an onstage conversation with Nicole Kidman, a screening of LION, and the presentation of the MVFF Award in recognition of a career that exemplifies the art of great acting.


With skill and delicacy, director Garth Davis knocks it out of the park in an unforgettable tale of lost-and-found family identity, featuring outstanding performances by Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. Lion recreates the amazingly true (and truly amazing) story of one man’s extraordinary quest to find his birth family. Australia/UK/US 2016, 129 min. Directed by Garth Davis
