Tarantino to receive 5th Lumiere Award

Quentin Tarantino will receive the 5th Lumiere Award at France’s 2013 Lumiere-Grand Lyon Festival, a unique film event held in the city of Lyon and whose program is made up almost entirely of restorations and re-issues. Prior Lumiere Award recipients were Clint Eastwood, Milos Forman, Gerard Depardieu and Ken Loach. Running Oct. 14-20, the highly popular Lumiere Festival is organized by Lyon’s Lumiere Institute, which is headed by president Bertrand Tavernier and director Thierry Fremaux. Ingmar Bergman (“The Seventh Seal”), Hal Ashby (“Harold and Maude,” “Being There”) and French filmmaker Henri Verneuil (“Guns for San Sebastian”) will also be honored at the 5th Fest, which will host what looks like the world’s first classic films market.
