Directors’ Fortnight to fete Ceylan

Turkish auteur to receive Carosse d'Or

PARIS — Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan will receive the Carosse d’Or prize at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight, which will be helmed by Edouard Waintrop, its new artistic director.

Ceylan will be feted with the screening on his 1999 pic “Clouds of May,” a masterclass, a presser and the award ceremony, which will take place on May 17 during Directors’ Fortnight opening gala.

A critically aclaimed thesp-turned-helmer, Ceylan is a veteran of the Cannes Film Festival. His 2003 drama “Wrong Rosary” won the jury prize and earned him the actor nod, “Climates” nabbed the Fipresci kudo in 2006, “Three Monkeys” won director prize in 2008 and “Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” won the jury prize last year.

Ceylan also served on Cannes’ competition jury in 2009.

Awarded by the French Directors Guild, the Carosse d’Or “pays tribute to filmmakers around the world who stand apart due to the innovative qualities of their films as well as their audacity and independence,” stated the sidebar.

Last year’s honoree was Iranian helmer Jafar Panahi.
