Clint Eastwood received the Sun Valley Film Festival’s inaugural Lifetime Vision Award during an intimate dinner on March 7 at the fourth edition of this fun-packed festival. Eastwood was honored for his long, remarkable, award-winning career as a visionary filmmaker. Upon receiving the award Eastwood remarked, “I absolutely love Sun Valley. I was lucky enough to make a movie here (Pale Rider), and if I had my way I would hang out here all the time. But I guess I’ll have to make another movie at some point since my last movie (American Sniper) did fairly well. So much of this business is hard work and a lot of good luck. And tonight I consider myself lucky to get to know you all. I can only wish you the best of luck to keep this great film festival going for many years to come.”
