Chicago International Film Festival and Cinema/Chicago to host tribute to Jane Fonda
Actress Jane Fonda will be honored on July 29 in Chicago.

Cinema/Chicago and the 53rd Chicago International Film Festival will host a special tribute to two-time Academy Award-winner and three-time Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Fonda. A Tribute to Jane Fonda will take place on Saturday, July 29, at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel and will feature an on-stage conversation with Fonda, giving insight into her experience and approach to her craft, accompanied by iconic clips from her illustrious career. The celebratory evening will conclude with the presentation of The Chicago International Film Festival’s Gold Hugo Career Achievement Award to Fonda for her contributions to both film and television.

Led by evening sponsor SAGE Private Wealth Group, the Tribute will be co-chaired by Cinema/Chicago Governing Board Member Lauren Robishaw and Director of Decorative Arts at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers Corbin Horn. The celebratory evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a festive reception including cocktails, small plates and a silent auction followed by the conversation with Fonda. After the main event concludes, guests are invited to a special after-party at the Radisson Blu with music and dancing.

Cinema/Chicago Founder and CEO Michael Kutza stated, “I have grown up on the films of Jane Fonda from Barbarella and They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? to Klute and Coming Home—and I am now enchanted all over again by her television series Grace and Frankie. She continually reinvents herself in exciting and brilliant ways.”
