WALTHAM, Mass. -- Actor Tony Goldwyn ’82 received the first SunDeis Alumni Achievement Award ever given in the history of the five-year old festival during the red carpet awards ceremony on March 16.

Goldwyn is probably best known for the role he played as the villain in "Ghost" (1990), opposite Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze. He also starred as Neil Armstrong in the HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon" (1998), provided the voice of the lead character Tarzan in Disney's "Tarzan" (1999) and played Tom Cruise's rival in "The Last Samurai" (2003).  He directed the 2006 film "The Last Kiss," starring Zach Braff, Jacinda Barrett, Casey Affleck & Rachel Bilson.

The two-day festival (March 15-16) was a forum for student filmmakers to showcase their work and interact with people who have succeeded in various sectors of the film industry, including many Brandeis alumni. More than a dozen awards were handed out for student-produced films. For a complete winners list visit:
