German director’s “Stopped on Track” won Un Certain Regard prize in Cannes.

COLOGNE, Germany – German director Andreas Dresen will be honored with the Master of Cinema award at this year’s Mannheim-Heidelberg film festival. Former prize winners included art house luminaries such as Atom Egoyan, Wim Wenders and Zhang Yimou.

Dresen is best known for his socially-realistic dramas which mix working class hardship with warm-hearted humor. His latest, the cancer drama Stopped on Track, won the Un Certain Regard prize at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

Dresen and Mannheim go way back. In 1990, the director screened one of his early shorts, Zug in die Ferne, at the festival. Dresen will receive his award on Nov.10. The ceremony will be flowed by the screening of his 2009 film industry satire Whiskey With Vodka.

The 60th Mannheim-Heidelberg film festival runs Nov. 10-20.
