Palm Springs to fete 'Babel' cast, director


The 18th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival, which runs Jan. 4-15, will honor the cast of "Babel" with the fest's first-ever Ensemble Performance Award and will recognize the film's director, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, with its Director of the Year Award at its annual awards gala Jan. 6 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

Cast members Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi are expected to attend, along with Inarritu.

"Babel' is truly a remarkable film, featuring a diverse cast of both actors and nonactors, all of whom contributed immeasurably to the power of this unique film," festival chairman Earl Greenburg said Thursday.
