STEVE MCQUEEN

Born in London in 1969, acclaimed British filmmaker Steve McQueen made his name as a visual artist working in film and video before turning to feature filmmaking. He has seen his artwork collected by museums the world over, and in 1999 won Britain’s highly prestigious Turner Prize for a video based on a film by Buster Keaton. His first feature, 2008’s Hunger, about a 1981 hunger strike among Northern Ireland republican prisoners, won the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. His next feature, Shame (MVFF in 2012), starred Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan in an uncompromising drama about sexual addiction. With his latest film, 12 Years a Slave, McQueen once again brings a coruscatingly forceful imagination and unwavering integrity to the raw facts of history and human yearning.


CHIWETEL EJIOFOR

British actor Chiwetel Ejliofor, born in London to Nigerian parents in 1977, began acting at age 13, eventually entering the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA)—only to leave early after being cast in Steven Spielberg’s Amistad (1997). Since then, Eliofor has enjoyed a steadily growing and critically acclaimed career on stage and screen. His film work includes award-winning performances in Stephen Frears’ Dirty Pretty Things and Kasi Lemmons’ Talk to Me as well as appearances in Love Actually , Woody Allen’s Melinda and Melinda, Kinky Boots, Inside Man, Children of Men, American Gangster and Half of a Yellow Sun as well as numerous works for television. His theatrical career includes an award-winning performance as Othello, alongside Ewan McGregor’s Iago, in director Michael Grandage’s 2008 West End production.

In an MVFF first, Steve McQueen AND Chiwetel Ejiofor will both be presented with the MVFF Award, designed by acclaimed Mill Valley artist Alice Corning.
