  Bruce Dern has acquired the reputation of being one of the most talented and prolific actors of his generation. He turns 80-years old on Saturday – the same day he will be honored with a tribute at the Berkshire International Film Festival.

He will be in conversation with famed film director Douglas Trumbull, who directed Dern in the 1972 classic, Silent Running. Their talk will be followed by a screening of the Oscar nominated Nebraska at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington at 7PM.
