    AFI FEST 2005 salutes Johnny Depp

    AFI FEST 2005 has selected actor Johnny Depp as this year's tributee. The Tribute to Johnny Depp will take place at ArcLight Hollywood on Friday, November 11, followed by the World Premiere of The Weinstein Company's THE LIBERTINE, directed by Laurence Dunmore and starring Depp, Samantha Morton and John Malkovich, as part of the Festival's Special Screening series.

    "Our challenge each year in choosing a tributee is to find someone who is a highly accomplished artist about whom we crave to know more," says Christian Gaines, Director of AFI FEST. "Johnny Depp is such an artist. He has made interesting, risky choices in his career and has evolved into one of the most absorbing actors of our time."

    Celebrity attendees last year included tributee Pedro Almodóvar, Kevin Bacon, Kate Bosworth, Jodie Foster, John Goodman, Joshua Jackson, Emily Mortimer, Kevin Spacey and many more, and this year's film lineup and tribute promise to bring even more A-list Hollywood luminaries to the ArcLight Hollywood. Again, only the AllPass will guarantee access to the Tribute to Johnny Depp.

    Re: AFI FEST 2005 salutes Johnny Depp


    He's been a poet, a pauper, a prophet, a pirate, a pawn and a king (sort of), and on Friday evening, November 11, Johnny Depp was celebrated in a special Tribute--made possible through a collective partnership with Skirball Cultural Center, and sponsored by Montblanc with support from LA Weekly--as part of AFI FEST 2005. If it was frequently clear that he's not always comfortable with the attention and acclaim--Depp joked that might need a bucket on standby when sitting through clips of his own work--the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star was a game and gracious subject for a rapturous, sold-out audience and moderator Richard Schickel, who just the previous day was on hand to introduce a special screening of Elia Kazan's overlooked 1960 gem WILD RIVER.
