A Tribute to Christoph Waltz


Christoph Waltz is best known for his work with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. Waltz wowed critics and audiences alike with his 2009 Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning turn as  SS Colonel Hans Landa in Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. The two would team up again in Django Unchained, which earned Waltz the 2012 Golden Globe and Academy Award in the same category. Other acclaimed roles include plagiarist Walter Keane in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes; 007 nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofield in Spectre, and Dušan Mirković in 2017’s Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, which he made with Academy Award-winning producer and VAFF Advisory Board Chair Mark Johnson. Discussion with actor Christoph Waltz, moderated by VAFF Advisory Board Chair Mark Johnson
