Event Details

To commemorate the legacy of Charles Spencer Chaplin’s cinematic career and his long association to Catalina Island for almost three decades, the Charlie Chaplin ICON Award© is given during the annual festival to an actor or filmmaker whose work embodies Charles Spencer Chaplin’s qualities of realism, diversity, and courage within his craft. This year's recipient is legendary star and filmmaker JON FAVREAU. From his breakout role in Rudy, to writing, co-producing and starring in the cult classic, Swingers, all the way to directing international box office blockbusters, Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Favreau has excelled in many disciplines of film as an actor, producer, writer and director.

Join us at 4:00PM for a red carpet arrival and presentation as we honor Mr. Favreau with his award before joining the private reception to follow.  All 5-Day pass-holders are also invited to be a part of this event.

After the reception, presented by e Comm Merchant Solutions, you are also invited to our Catalina Film Festival Chamber of Commerce Mixer on Wrigley Stage (right on Avalon’s beachfront) from 6:00PM-8:00PM.  Enjoy food from Cafe Metropole and sponsored drinks while you mix and mingle to the setting sun.

From 8PM-10PM you are invited to an EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PREVIEW screening of ASS BACKWARDS at the Lancer Auditorium with the stars in attendance for their film! Remember, you have priority seating with your VIP status. After the screening, everyone is invited to the ASS BACKWARDS AFTER PARTY at the Hotel Metropole to hang out with the stars and enjoy Catalina's nightlife!
