Polanski to pick up award at Zurich Film Festival
Polanski to attend Zurich Film Festival to receive lifetime achievement award
By The Associated Press

GENEVA (AP) ' Organizers say director Roman Polanski will attend this month's Zurich Film Festival to accept the lifetime achievement award intended for him two years ago.

Festival spokesperson Claudia Wintsch confirmed Thursday he will be present at the Sept. 27 tribute ceremony but would provide no more details.

The Oscar-winning director was freed in July 2010 from house arrest when Switzerland's government refused to extradite him to the United States where he faces charges of having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.



Polanski also served two months in prison as the Swiss government pondered his extradition.

Polanski's movements are restricted by an Interpol warrant in effect in 188 countries, but he moves freely between Switzerland and France.
