Fest set to fete helmer Deville

World Brief

Gallic helmer Michel Deville will receive a lifetime achievement award and a retrospective of his work at the first New Montreal FilmFest.

Wednesday’s announcement is the first about the lineup of the fledgling event, which is locked in a bitter battle for coin and turf with Serge Losique’s Montreal World Film Festival.

The New Montreal FilmFest will also feature a Focus on French Cinema program, which will include the Deville showcase.

Deville has made a wide variety of films, ranging from political drama (“Dossier 51” in 1978) to erotic thriller (“Peril en la demeure” in 1985) to crime pic (“Le Paltoquet” in 1986).

Fest runs Sept. 18-25, immediately following the Toronto Film Festival.
