Juliette Binoche will receive the Honorary Dragon Award at the 2018 Göteborg Film Festival (26 Jan – 5 Feb).
Binoche, whose films include The English Patient and Three Colours: Blue, will receive her award at the festival on Feb 3 and hold a masterclass the following day.
She has also selected Scenes From A Marriage for a special retrospective as part of the event’s celebration of the 100-year anniversary of Ingmar Bergman’s birth.
Göteborg Film Festival will also honour Binoche with a retrospective of her films.
Binoche said: “First I want to thank Göteborg Film Festival for this honorary award, I take it as a wink, a tap on the shoulder or even a hug! I almost want to answer that I hope it doesn’t mean anything too serious!”
As previously announced, Alicia Vikander will receive the Nordic Honorary Dragon Award at the festival.
