COPENHAGEN — Scribes Jim Sheridan, David Hare and Jean-Claude Carriere will help highlight screenwriting at the Copenhagen Intl. Film Festival, which runs Sept. 20-30.
Carriere will be presented with a lifetime achievement award for his work on films including “Belle du jour,” “The Tin Drum” and literary adaptations “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “Cyrano de Bergerac.”
