Tarantino to get French film award
US filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will be presented with a special prize for his body of work next month at the César Awards, the French equivalent of the Oscars.
The awards ceremony president, Alain Terzian, said Friday that Tarantinto will be given the award as a mark of respect for "a great international artist".
Among the actors who may pick up a prize are long-standing French film favourites Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of French rocker Serge Gainsbourg, and Briton-now-resident-in-France Kristin Scott-Thomas.
US actress Jodie Foster will preside over the 36th edition of the annual awards in Paris on 25 February.
