Danny Glover will be given a lifetime achievement award during a film festival in Norfolk.

The second annual Old Dominion University/City of Norfolk (ONFilm) Festival will be held on the ODU campus and city venues from March 29 through April 5.

The theme is "Reel Politics" and the festival will include free screenings of films examining subjects from Cold War politics to the politics of gender.

Old Dominion said that Glover, an advocate for social rights, will receive his award during a closing gala on April 5 at the Granby Theater.

The 60-year-old actor's film credits include the "Lethal Weapon" series and "The Color Purple" as well as "Saw" and "Dreamgirls."
