William Shatner (James T. Kirk) will receive a prestigious honour at a California film festival in September.
The Captain Kirk actor will receive the 2002 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Temecula Valley International Film & Music Festival, which runs from from September 18th to 22nd.
"He has been involved in front and behind the camera, television and movies," said Jo Moulton, festival director. "He is longevity."
The festival will also be showing the Shatner-produced movie 'Groom Lake,' described as a romance with a science fiction theme. Shatner wrote, produced and starred in the production, which is due for release in January next year.
The Temecula Valley International Film & Music Festival aims to show a variety of local, national and international films and personalities. The 2002 show will mark its 8th anniversary, and will feature around 70 movies. It will be held at the Movie Experience 10-plex cinema at the Tower Plaza in Temecula, Southern California. More information is available at the festival web site.
