David Lynch to make splash at Cologne

Director to receive festival's film prize

David Lynch will receive the Cologne Film Prize at the 20th Cologne Conference Film and TV Festival today.

As part of the tribute, the fest is presenting a retrospective of his works, including “Eraserhead” (1976), “Blue Velvet” (1986), “Wild at Heart” (1990), “Lost Highway” (1997) and “Mulholland Dr.” (2001).

Lynch’s classic TV series “Twin Peaks,” which screened at the first Cologne Conference in 1991 before airing here on RTL, will also unspool at the event.

Lynch will be the fourth recipient of the Cologne Film Prize since its launch in 2007. Roman Polanski was awarded the prize last year but could not attend due to his incarceration in Switzerland. The other recipients are Paul Haggis and Belgian directors Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne.

Among the TV series and films presented at this year’s fest are HBO’s New Orleans-set skein “Treme,” AMC’s “Mad Men,” BBC crime drama “Luther,” ITV’s “The Prisoner” and Paul King’s U.K. film “Bunny and the Bull.”
