Penn To Get Berlin Honour

Published on December 18, 2006 with No Comments

Revered moviemaker Arthur Penn is to receive the highest honour at next year’s Berlin Film Festival for his life’s work.

The Bonnie + Clyde director, 84, will be presented with the Golden Bear Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 10-day film event in February (07).

Festival director Dieter Kosslick insists Penn deserves the top film prize for helping to reshape Hollywood in the 1960s and 1970s.

In a statement, Kosslick writes, “Arthur Penn’s films of the 1960s and early 1970s reanimated the crisis-ridden American cinema. He is a great director.”
