Taipei, Aug. 1 (CNA) Taiwanese actress and producer Hsu Feng (徐楓), whose
cinematic career has spanned almost four decades, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Horse Awards this year, the festival’s executive committee announced on Tuesday.
“I would like to thank the Golden Horse Awards’ judges for their affirmation. This encourages me to return to film production soon as the best way to repay the Golden Horse Awards,” the 66-year-old actress said after learning about the honor.
