The Savannah College of Art and Design — which presents the yearly event — announced Aug. 23 that the actors will be honored on the festival's first night Oct. 27.
One of five generations of actors in the family, the Redgraves are known for both stage and screen ventures. Vanessa Regrave — who ended her Broadway run in The Year of Magical Thinking Aug. 25 — has won a Tony Award for Long Day's Journey Into Night and an Academy Award for "Julia."
Lynn Redgrave last appeared on Broadway in The Constant Wife and was Tony-nominated for her one-woman show, Shakespeare for My Father. She was Oscar-nominated for the films "Gods and Monsters" and "Georgy Girl."
Corin Redgrave earned a Tony nomination for his Broadway role in Not About Nightingales and first debuted on the New York stage in Chips With Everything. His acclaimed film roles include "In the Name of the Father" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral."
Achievement awards also will be presented to directors Milos Forman ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," "Amadeus," "Hair") and William Friedkin ("Bug," "The French Connection," "The Exorcist"). The college will also honor director Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour," "X-Men: The Last Stand") and actor-director-writer-producer John Sayles ("Lone Star," "Sunshine State").
