MOSCOW — The head of Russia’s top moviemaking complex, Mosfilm Studios, is to be honored with a lifetime achievement award at Macedonia’s 29th International Cinematographers’ Film Festival Manaki Brothers, which opens next week.

Karen Shakhnazarov, one of Russia’s top directors who has headed Mosfilm since 1998, will receive a special Golden Camera 300 award at the festival, which runs Sept. 27-Oct. 3 in Skopje and Bitola, fest organizers said Thursday.
