"Ruth Negga's performance as Mildred Loving is one of the year's most luminous and striking portrayals," said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. "This timeless love story about an interracial couple reminds us of the unstoppable power of love in the face of hate and prejudice - a story that could not be more resonant and powerful today. This will certainly be just one of many breathtaking performances in a long career. The Palm Springs International Film Festival is honored to present Ruth Negga with this year's Rising Star Award."
