The Visionary Award®
The DaVinci International Film Festival Unveils the Visionary Award: Honoring the Human Endeavor in the Arts & Sciences.

Visionary Award - DIFFBeyond the red carpets and glittering lights, the entertainment industry and the arts are fueled by a potent force: vision. It’s the spark that ignites groundbreaking stories, pushes artistic boundaries, and leaves an indelible mark on culture. And at the DaVinci International Film Festival (DIFF), we’re proud to celebrate this creative spirit with our Visionary Award®.

This prestigious award, which will be presented for the first time on February 25th, 2024 to Michael J. Fox, transcends the traditional industry accolades. It recognizes not just on-screen talent, but unprecedented achievement that extends far beyond the frame.

We celebrate those who color outside the lines and challenge the status quo with creativity and conviction. These are the individuals who ignite positive change, whose legacies ripple outwards, enriching the lives of countless others.

This is not just an award, it’s a movement. A movement that recognizes the unwavering pursuit of progress, the audacity to dream big, and the unyielding spirit that pushes humanity forward. It’s a movement that celebrates visionaries who leave their mark on the arts, on science, and on the world itself.

Michael J. Fox exemplifies this spirit to the highest degree. His life’s work, etched with beloved characters on screen, shines as a beacon of artistic mastery. But beyond the screen, his steadfast dedication to Parkinson’s research and advocacy showcases his profound commitment to making a difference. He is a true inspiration and a living embodiment of the Visionary Award’s core values.

Join us on February 25th, 2024, as we celebrate Michael J. Fox and present our inaugural Visionary Award.  DaVinci International Film Festival is dedicated to honoring the human endeavor in the arts and sciences by amplifying the transformative power of art, and the stories that shape our world.

*Michael J. Fox will be unable to attend the ceremony in person, but he has graciously accepted his award via prerecorded video that will screen at DaVinci’s Award Ceremony.
