Oscar-winning actor Benicio Del Toro is to be honoured for his contribution to cinema at the upcoming San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain.

The Traffic star will be presented with the Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award during the event's closing gala later this month (Sep14).

The movie event will also feature the premiere of his new film Escobar: Paradise Lost.

Del Toro follows in the footsteps of previous winners including Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, and Hugh Jackman, who took home the Donostia prize last year (13).
