US actor and producer Danny Glover, one of the stars invited to the Global Dominican Film Festival which will be held in Santo Domingo from November 15 until 20 November, will be awarded an honorary PhD at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo.
Glover is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and this latest award is in recognition of his international work in support of human rights and against AIDS. The awards ceremony will form part of the university’s 475th anniversary celebrations.
The Dominican Global Film Festival is dedicated this year to Barahona’s Maria Montez, a 1940s Hollywood actress known as the “Queen of Technicolor.”
