Kravitz, daughter of the legendary US-Bahamian musician Lenny Kravitz, will collect the honour during the festival, which runs from Dec 1-4.

“Nobody embodies the spirit of BIFF’s Rising Star award more than Zoe Kravitz,” Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) founder and executive director Leslie Vanderpool said.

“A multi-talented performer who excels in film, TV and music, we know the Bahamian community will embrace her and help us celebrate her past, current and, most certainly, future success.”

Kravitz made her acting debut in No Reservations in 2007. She later starred in the films It’s Kind Of A Funny Story and X-Men: First Class.

BIFF will also screen Yelling To The Sky, which debuted in Berlin earlier in the year. The festival is set to take place at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island.
