The 50th Chicago International Film Festival presented actor Michael Keaton with the Founder's Award for his electrifying performance as an actor who hopes to revive his moribund career in Alejandro G. Iñárritu's daring comedy "Birdman." "To pick a single film or performance from this year's incredibly strong lineup of more than 150 films was difficult, but an eagerly anticipated challenge - they all exemplify the Festival's spirit of innovation and discovery. And yet, Michael Keaton's performance in 'Birdman' moved me deeply; it confirmed that Keaton is not only one of our greatest American actors, but one whose work will soon be reevaluated and further appreciated," said Festival Founder and Artistic Director Michael Kutza.
