Meryl Streep is to be honoured for her wide-ranging career at this year's Berlin film festival.

The 62-year-old will be presented with an honorary Golden Bear, the event's top award, on February 14.

Festival director Dieter Kosslick said: "Meryl Streep is a brilliant, versatile performer who moves with ease between dramatic and comedic roles."

The two-time Oscar winner will be honoured at a screening of her latest movie, The Iron Lady, in which she plays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

The festival will also screen older Streep films, including Kramer Vs Kramer and Sophie's Choice.

The Berlin event, the first of the year's major European film festivals, takes place February 9 to 19.
