MADRID (AP) - The organizing committee of Spain’s premiere film festival says Hollywood actress Glenn Close is to receive this year’s edition of its lifetime achievement award.

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 San Sebastian Festival, it said in a statement Friday.

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

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

(This version CORRECTS Liv Ullman’s nationality to Norwegian instead of Swedish.)
