Jailed Iranian film directors Jafar Panahi and Mohammad Rasoulof are to be honoured at the Cannes Film Festival.
Rasoulof’s film Goodbye and Pahani’s This Is Not a Film will be shown at the festival, organisers have said.
Panahi will also be awarded the Carrosse d’Or – the Golden Coach prize – by the French Film Director’s Society (SRF) at the event.
The film-makers were convicted in December for working against the Iranian system, Panahi’s lawyer said.
Both men were sentenced to six years imprisonment in separate cases.
According to a statement released in Italy in November, Panahi had gone on trial in Iran accused of making a film without permission and inciting opposition protests after the disputed 2009 presidential election that led to months of political turmoil.
