Glenn Close to receive film award

Glenn Close is to receive a lifetime achievement award at the San Sebastian festival in Spain.

The actress will also introduce her latest work, Albert Nobbs, a movie directed by Rodrigo Garcia which depicts life in 19th century Ireland, at the festival, its organising committee has announced.

Previous recipients of the Donostia lifetime award have included American actors Richard Gere and Meryl Streep, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas and Swedish actress Liv Ullmann.

The annual festival is due to culminate with a star-studded red carpet award ceremony on September 18 in the northern seaside city of San Sebastian, known as Donostia in the local Basque language.
