Swedish film legend Ingmar Bergman has been honoured for his work in preserving and restoring old colour films.

The Fanny and Alexander movie-maker, who will be 85 next month (JUL03), was given the FILM PRESERVATION AWARD by a Brussels, Belgium-based group, the INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF FILM ARCHIVES.

After receiving the gong in Stockholm, Sweden, he said, "Now, when I have received this prize, I feel that even I belong to this passionate union."

Martin Scorsese and Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira are among the previous recipients of the prestigious prize.
