Film director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the 33rd annual Jerusalem Film Festival’s opening ceremony on Thursday night.

The director’s acceptance speech was “short and sweet,” according to Gidi Kleiman, BBC News‘ senior producer in Israel.

The festival, which began Thursday and runs until July 17, will screen Tarantino’s Oscar-winning 1994 feature Pulp Fiction. A restored 35mm print of the film from Tarantino’s personal archive will be shown, followed by a live Q&A on stage with the director, according to ScreenDaily.com.

Tarantino last visited Israel in 2009 to promote his World War II thriller Inglourious Basterds.

      It is spelled ‘Basterds’ which for Tarantino is not surprising. He follows his own path and usually makes amazing movies, with some exceptions.
