Australian actor Steve Le Marquand has been honoured at the Winton Vision Splendid Film Festival.

Le Marquand's name was added to Winton's Walk of Fame on the footpath on the main drag at Elderslie Street.

The new star was unveiled on Saturday morning in his presence with his daughter Charlie, Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey and Winton Mayor Gavin Baskett.

Le Marquand, 51, is best known for his starring role in Red Dog, True Blue, Broke and One Eyed Girl.

He was honoured for a lifetime of stage and film work, most notably for his role as co-writer, producer, directed and star in the stage production of He Died With A Felafel In His Hand.

Steve is the fifth star to be recognised for his contribution to Australia's film industry following actor Roy Billing, director Ivan Sen, film critic Margaret Pomeranz and former Winton Mayor Butch Lenton.

The film festival officially opened on Sunday, June 28 with a screening of the Australian film Locusts and it goes to Saturday, July 6.
