"Since his breakthrough role in Good Will Hunting, Matt Damon has taken on a series of challenging roles through his career," said Film Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. "In his latest film, The Martian, Damon dazzles yet again as Mark Watney, an astronaut desperately trying to survive on Mars, yet still finding a way to laugh and bring hope to an impossible situation. It is an honor to present Matt Damon with the 2016 Chairman's Award."
