Daryl Hannah will receive the Bahamas International Film Festival's (BIFF) Career Achievement Tribute Award on December 8.

Nicolas Cage received the honours last year, which recognises an actor or actress whose work has had 'a major impact and has advanced the frontiers of cinematic artistry around the world'.

Festival patron Sean Connery will present the award to Hannah, whose roles include Splash, Kill Bill Vols I and II, Blade Runner, Roxanne, Wall Street and Silver City.

The BIFF is set to run from December 6-13. For further details visit the website at www.bintlfilmfest.com.
