Washington, March 31 (ANI): Francis Ford Coppola is set to be honoured with the Founder’s Directing Award at the San Francisco Film Festival.
The Godfather director will receive the award from the oldest continuously running film festival in the Americas at the Film Society’s Awards Night fundraiser on April 30.
The five-time Oscar-winner will join his predecessors, including Mike Leigh, Akira Kurosawa, Spike Lee, Werner Herzog, Robert Altman, and Clint Eastwood, reports Contactmusic.
Interestingly, the 69-year-old had previously revealed that he was the ‘black sheep’ of the family.
And his parents and siblings used to think that he would end up unmarried, jobless, and penniless. (ANI)
