The veteran actor, who picked up his third Oscar nomination this year for his supporting turn in The Florida Project, will receive his Berlin trophy at a ceremony in the German capital Feb. 20.
In his honor, Berlin will screen a retrospective of Dafoe’s career, featuring such highlights as Oliver Stone’s Platoon and Shadow of a Vampire from E. Elias Merhige, both of which garnered Oscar nominations in the best supporting actor category. Also included in Berlin’s Dafoe retrospective are Lars von Trier’s Antichrist, Alan Parker’s Mississippi Burning, William Friedkin’s To Live and Die in L.A. and Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
Anderson’s latest, the animated feature Isle of Dogs, will open the 2018 Berlin Film Festival on Feb. 15. The 68th Berlinale runs through Feb. 25.
