“‘The Fabelmans’ is a success not only as a deeply personal portrait of Steven Spielberg’s childhood, but also as a profoundly universal story to which we can all relate. “The film gives audiences a glimpse of Spielberg’s early passion for movies and filmmaking, and the ensemble performance by Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Gabriel LaBelle, and Judd Hirsch makes it one of the year’s must-see films,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner in a statement. “It is our pleasure to present ‘The Fabelmans’ with the Vanguard Award.”

The Vanguard Award honors the cast and director of an exceptional film for their collaborative efforts. Past recipients include “Green Book” and “The Shape of Water,” as well as “Belfast,” “La La Land,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” which were nominated for best picture. Cate Blanchett (Desert Palm Achievement Award, actress), Colin Farrell (Desert Palm Achievement Award, actor), Sarah Polley (Director of the Year Award), and Michelle Yeoh were previously announced as recipients at this year’s awards ceremony (International Star Award).

The Palm Springs International Film Awards will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on January 5. This year’s festival will continue until January 16.
