Francis Ford Coppola to Receive Stockholm Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award

PARIS — Francis Ford Coppola is set to receive the Bronze Horse for lifetime achievement at the Stockholm International Film Festival in November.

“In my lifetime, I’ve never had the pleasure to visit Sweden and its capital Stockholm, which I’ve always wanted [to do],” Coppola said. The Stockholm International Film Festival runs from Nov. 9 to 20.

Previous recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award include David Cronenberg, David Lynch, Lauren Bacall, Wong Kar-wai and Claire Denis.

“When the Stockholm International Film Festival was founded 27 years ago, we made a list of directors we would love to host. The first name on it was Francis Ford Coppola. To welcome the godfather of cinema to Stockholm is a dream coming true,” said Git Scheynius, the festival director.

Coppola’s films “encapsulate their own era with perfect authenticity, yet remain equally relevant today. From Don Corleone’s epic and corrupt family enterprise, through the dangers of the surveillance society to the apocalyptic wars of the west, his prophetic images and powerful stories have defined cinema for generations,” the festival said in a statement.

Coppola, who won five Oscars and four Golden Globes through his long career with cult films like “Apocalypse Now” and “The Godfather” trilogy, last directed “Distant Vision,” a new multi-generational Italian-American saga.
