"Young, shining and with an impressive body of work behind her, Kristen Stewart is the perfect bridge between the U.S. and Europe," said festival directors Mariette Rissenbeek and Carlo Chatrian.
"From Bella Swan to the Princess of Wales she has given life to everlasting characters and is one of the most talented and multi-faceted actors of her generation."
Stewart is only 32 but has been an everpresent in the film world for two decades. She broke through opposite Jodie Foster in David Fincher's Panic Room and achieved worldwide recognition with a leading role in the Twilight saga from 2008 to 2012. More recent credits include Clouds of Sils Maria, Personal Shopper and Spencer, the Princess Diana biopic for which she was Oscar nominated.
She has also worked behind the camera, directing the likes of short film Crickets , which debuted at Venice 2020, and Come Swim, which was shown at Cannes. Stewart is currently working on her feature-length directorial debut, a film adaptation of Lidia Yuknavitch's The Chronology of Water.

Steven Spielberg, meanwhile, will be feted with the Honorary Golden Bear for lifetime achievement and also screen most of his recent work, including upcoming The Fabelmans .
