The 63-year-old star will be the subject of a tribute along with US actress Laura Linney.

A screening of Persepolis, an aminated film for which Deneuve provides the lead voice, will follow the tribute.
Linney's latest release, The Savages, will also be shown at the event.

Deneuve, whose credits include Belle de Jour and Dancer In the Dark, was nominated for an Oscar in 1993 for her role in Indochine and has won two Cesars - France's equivalent of the Academy Awards.
Last year she won a lifetime achievement award at the Bangkok Film Festival.
Linney, who has had two Oscar nominations, co-starred in The Truman Show alongside Jim Carrey.
On the small screen she played Mary Ann Singleton in Tales of the City.
