Photos from a tribute to comic actor Will Ferrell at the Vienna International Film Festival.

Will Ferrell was honored at the Viennale Film Festival on Nov 6 alongside a screening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

A special tribute to Ferrell was held the week leading up to the festival showcasing his other films.

It marked the first time that Anchorman 2 had been screened to an audience in Austria and Ferrell was met with a standing ovation - unusual given that the festival director Hans Hurch noted Austrian audiences are usually quite reserved.
