Honorary Palme d’or voor George Lucas

Op 25 mei zal George Lucas tijdens het filmfestival van Cannes de Honorary Palme d’or ontvangen. De closing ceremony zal worden uitgezonden op televisie op Frankrijk 2.

“The Festival de Cannes has always held a special place in my heart.  I was surprised and elated when my first film, THX-1138, was selected to be shown in a new program for first time directors called the Directors’ Fortnight.  Since then, I have returned to the festival on many occasions in a variety of capacities as a writer, director and producer.  I am truly honored by this special recognition which means a great deal to me.” (George Lucas)
