Berlinale Bosses To Honour Bergman
Late Swedish director Ingmar Bergman will be honoured from beyond the grave at next year's (11) Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale).
The legendary filmmaker, who died in 2007, will be honoured with a retrospective of his works at the 61st annual event in Germany, which kicks off on 20 February, 2011.
The festival will show all of Bergman’s films and a sample of his works as a screenwriter.
His archive includes more than 60 movies, including Wild Strawberries, which won the Berlinale's top honour the Golden Bear in 1958, 1973's Scenes From a Marriage and 1982's Fanny and Alexander, which won four Oscars.
Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick described Bergman's films as "part of the Berlinale's history".
