The 16th annual Cinema Jove International Film Festival (June 16-23) will dedicate a retrospective to the early films of French director Claude Chabrol.

The retrospective, set to cover the director's films from the late 1950s and early 1960s, is dubbed "The young' Chabrol." It follows last year's debut of a section dedicated to films made by veteran directors before they turned 35. According to a festival statement, these are films which - had the festival then existed - could have competed at Cinema Jove, an event dedicated to the work of under-35 filmmakers.

This year's Cinema Jove will also feature a tribute to "the great renovator of the American comedy," Blake Edwards, including screenings of classic films such as Breakfast At Tiffany's, The Pink Panther and Victor/Victoria.

Spanish actress Lucia Jimenez (The Art Of Dying) will receive the festival's "future of cinema" award dedicated to up-and-coming talents. Finally, a sidebar titled "2001: Utopia's Reverse" will screen film adaptations of the futuristic visions of authors such as Clarke, Huxley, Orwell and Kafka.
