The 19th Gerardmer International Fantasy Film Festival
January 25 to 29, 2012


Jean-Jacques Annaud (who directed Ron in "Quest for Fire," "The Name of the Rose" and "Enemy at the Gates") and Jean-Pierre Jeunet (director of "The City of Lost Children" and "Alien Resurrection") were on stage to tell some nice trivia. After a short video retrospective of his filmography, Ron was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Trophy by Jean-Jacques Annaud.

This must have been a wonderful occasion for Ron, and a truly well-deserved tribute to a phenomenally talented actor.
Congratulations, Mr Perlman!

With grateful thanks to my good friend, Josianne Garrigues, for many of the photos above, and the very entertaining video links below.
Do check them out, they're interesting and very amusing in parts.
