The Mumbai Film Festival (18-25 Oct) is to honour Chinese director ZHANG Yimou with a lifetime achievement award.

The festival said that Zhang "is in the league of select oriental filmmakers who have successfully made a transition to mainstream Western cinema". It noted his films Raise the Red Lantern (1991), Hero (2002), House of Flying Daggers (2004) and Curse Of The Golden Flower (2006), as well as his direction of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Olympic Games.

Previous recipients include Morgan Freeman and Oliver Stone.
