The San Sebastian International Film Festival (Sept 19-28) has finalised the programme for its 50th anniversary edition, unveiling a surprise tribute to Francis Ford Coppola and the members of its competition jury, presided over by Wim Wenders.
The festival also added Daniele Thomson's Jet Lag (Decalage Horaire) (pictured) as the closing film of the official section, screening out of competition. Stephen Frears' Dirty Pretty Things was also added to the Sabaltegi section.
The Coppola tribute, a special 50th anniversary award, is set to include screenings of nine of his feature films, from early works such as The Rain People and The Conversation through the entire Godfather trilogy and concluding with Apocalypse Now Redux, the director's expanded version of his 1979 classic.
Coppola also boarded and re-edited Thai film The Legend Of Suriyothai, which will screen out of competition in the official section and whose director, Prince Chatri Chalerm Yukol, sits on the official jury alongside Wenders, Ariane Ascaride, Mariano Barroso, Renato Berta, Mirta Ibarra and Angela Pope.
Members of the new directors jury include Bryony Dixon, Alberto Elena, Piers Handling, Angela Prudenzi, Ramon Saizarbitoria, Elias Savada and Peter Scarlet.
