The Museum of Modern Art’s 2021 Film Benefit, presented by CHANEL, will honor Academy Award–winning actress Penélope Cruz on December 14. This year’s Film Benefit returns to an in-person celebration and program that recognizes Cruz’s acclaimed work.

Cruz, an Ambassador for CHANEL since 2018, has been nominated for three Academy Awards, winning the Best Supporting Actress award in 2009 for her role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008). She most recently won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival for her work in the new film Parallel Mothers (2021), which will be released in the United States on December 24. MoMA will screen Parallel Mothers on December 15 as a part of its annual series, The Contenders, which showcases the year’s most noteworthy films bound for awards glory. Tickets for the screening of Parallel Mothers will be released to MoMA members on December 1, and to the general public on December 8.
