Polanski Set For Turin Festival Honor


Oscar-winning director ROMAN POLANSKI is to be honored at the Turin Film Festival in November (08).

The 74-year-old, who is considered a fugitive from American justice, has accepted an invitation to appear as a special guest at the celebrated Italian movie event.

Polanski fled to France in 1978 to escape charges of unlawful sex with a minor and has remained in Europe ever since.

The legendary moviemaker, who won a Best Director Oscar for 2002’s The Pianist, was invited to Turin by the festival’s artistic director Nanni Moretti – who worked with Polanski on 2008 film Caos Calmo.

And Moretti is delighted the director will be attending the festival, which takes place from 21-29 November (08).

He says, “I knew I would like for him to come to Turin, but I did not want to ask while we were shooting the film. But I sent him a note afterward, and he accepted.”
