French director featured

Edinburgh's international film festival is to feature the work of a French director in its retrospective this year.

The works of Jean Grémillon, known for some of the most highly regarded French films of the German occupation in the Second World War, will be celebrated at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The festival, in its second year under director Chris Fujiwara, is also bringing back its Audience Award after a two-year absence.

It was last awarded in 2010 to Aaron Schneider's Get Low. Other past winners include The Secret of Kells (2009); Man on Wire (2008); Tsotsi (2005) and Amelie (2001).
