Sean Penn, Robert Duvall and Isabelle Huppert will each receive the career achievement Donostia Award at Spain's upcoming Donostia-San Sebastian International Film Festival (Sept 18-27).

Huppert, who will receive her prize on Saturday the 20th, has starred in over 80 films. She won the best actress prize at Cannes in 2001 for her role in Michael Haneke's The Pianist (La Pianiste) and recently co-starred in Francois Ozon's 8 Women (Huit Femmes).

The festival calls Penn, the recent winner of the best actor prize in Venice for 21 Grams, "American cinema's last rebel," and the "worthy heir" of actors like Cagney, Bogart or Pacino. Penn will pick up his award on Tuesday the 23rd.

Duvall co-stars in San Sebastian closing film Open Range and will receive his Donostia award on Friday the 26th.
