Default Dean Stockwell to Receive Dennis Lee Hopper Award

The Albuquerque (NM) Film Festival will be awarding Dean Stockwell their Lifetime Achievement Award in August 2011.

The Cool School also includes commentary from two other famous transplanted New Mexican artists/actors who are also very close to the festival – the late Dennis Hopper and Dean Stockwell. Hopper was the 2009 recipient of the AFF Lifetime Achievement Award. Last year, in 2010, Henrich did not give out the award due to Hopper’s passing on May 29th and in turn, renamed it The Dennis Lee Hopper Award in his honor. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in film and the related arts and is awarded to an individual with a persistence of vision that reflects the independent spirit of Dennis Lee Hopper.

This year, Henrich is proud to announce that Dean Stockwell, a close friend to the late Dennis Hopper and Larry Bell, has been selected as the 2011 award recipient.

“We’re delighted that Mr. Stockwell has agreed to accept this award and we are planning to screen a retrospective of his work including his personal favorite Married to the Mob, which he was nominated for an Academy Award and David Lynch’s Blue Velvet which he stars opposite Dennis Hopper. This year’s festival promises to be as exciting and surprising as the last two years,” says Henrich, “with incredible films and people from New Mexico and around the globe.”
