Oscar winner Quentin Tarantino will mark the 20th anniversary of Richard Linklater's cult movie Dazed & Confused by presenting the director with the Star of Texas honour at the upcoming 13th annual Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards.

The Django Unchained writer/director has always been a big fan of the 1993 movie, which featured Matthew MCConaughey and Jason London, recently revealing it's one of his top 10 films of all time, and he has agreed to personally honour Linklater at the Austin Film Society event on 7 March (13).

The film's cast will reunite for a special screening at the Marchesa Hall and Theatre in Austin on the eve of the awards ceremony.
