The San Sebastian International Film Festival has announced that it will fete Canadian director and screenwriter David Cronenberg with its highest honorary accolade, the Donostia Award at this year’s 70th edition, which will take place from 16-24 September 2022.

Recognizing the career of “one of the most unusual filmmakers to come out of the last 50 years,” the award will be handed over to the filmmaker on September 21 at a ceremony in the festival’s main Victoria Eugenia Theatre, followed by a gala screening of Crimes of the Future, starring Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart which competed at the recent Festival de Cannes.

This will mark just the second time Cronenberg has attended the festival, previously attending within Eastern Promises, which opened the festival in 2007.

Previous recipients of the prestigious Donostia Award include Crimes of the Future star Viggo Mortensen, Sigourney Weaver, Ethan Hawke, Oliver Stone, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Anthony Hopkins, Robert Mitchum, Al Pacino, Michael Caine, and Francis Ford Coppola.
