“The Festival de Cannes has always held a special place in my heart," Lucas said in a statement. "I was surprised and elated when my first film, THX-1138, was selected to be shown in a new program for first time directors called the Directors’ Fortnight. Since then, I have returned to the festival on many occasions in a variety of capacities as a writer, director and producer. I am truly honoured by this special recognition, which means a great deal to me.”

The Cannes Film Festival runs May 14-25. The festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or, will be awarded to one of the films in competition during the closing ceremony.
