2012 Cannes Quinzaine des Réalisateurs Carrosse d’Or

A few minutes ago the Société des Réalisateurs de Films (SRF) announced that this year’s Carrosse d’Or goes to extraordinary master filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan and he’s to receive the honor at the 44th Directors’ Fortnight opening ceremony on May 17.

As you all know I highly admire Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s master oeuvres, especially the excellent 2011 Cannes Grand Prix winner Bir zamanlar Anadolu'da (Once Upon a Time In Anatolia) that if you have not seen you should as soon as possible.

Since 2002 the Carrosse d’Or recognizes a film director chosen for innovation in their films, for their boldness and intransigence in directing and production; so we know that this great honor is extremely well-deserved as his movies absolutely fit the award requisites well-above the norm.

To check the official announcement at the SRF site go here.

My sincere congratulations to Nuri Bilge Ceylan and hope to see the Quinzaine opening ceremony to enjoy the celebration of a great master filmmaker.
