Oscar-winning US actor Tommy Lee Jones will receive an award in honour of his career at the San Sebastian film festival in Spain next month, festival organisers said Thursday.

The 65-year-old Men in Black star will collect one of the festival's Donostia Awards, "awarded to a great film personality in recognition for their work and career", at a ceremony on September 28, they said in a statement.

Festival organisers praised Jones as "one of the most acclaimed and accomplished actors in Hollywood", who has had "a brilliant career spanning four decades".

Jones won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1994 for his portrayal of determined US Marshall Sam Gerard in the box office hit The Fugitive.

His latest film Hope Springs, in which he co-stars opposite Meryl Streep, will be screened out of competition at the festival.

Scottish actor Ewan McGregor and US director Oliver Stone will also receive a Donastia Award at San Sebastian this year.

Previous recipients of the prize include Julia Roberts, Glenn Close, Ian McKellen, Richard Gere and Woody Allen.

The 60th edition of the San Sebastian film festival, the oldest and most prestigious event of its kind in the Spanish speaking world, will take place between September 21 and 29.
