BERLIN (Hollywood Reporter) - Oscar-winning French composer Maurice Jarre will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Berlin International Film Festival, which runs from February 5-15.

Jarre, 84, is best known for his work with British director David Lean. He won three Oscars with arrangements for Lean films: “Lawrence of Arabia,” “Doctor Zhivago” and “A Passage to India.”

The composer will receive his Golden Bear at a ceremony on February 12, and the Berlinale will screen a series of films featuring Jarre’s work.
