American Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore will be honored at the Karlovy Vary film festival in the Czech Republic at the end of the month, organizers said Tuesday.

Moore won the 2014 Best Actress award for her role in Still Alice. She is also known for The Big Lebowski, Hannibal, The Hours and The Kids Are All Right.

Moore will receive the Crystal Globe award "for outstanding contribution to world cinema" at the opening ceremony, the organizers said in a statement.

The 54th edition of the festival in the western Czech spa city of Karlovy Vary, which sold 140,000 tickets to 501 screenings last year, will run from June 28 to July 6.
