Prague — The international film festival at the Czech spa of Karlovy Vary will honour U.S. actor Richard Gere for his outstanding contribution to world cinema.

Gere will present his movie Time out of Mind to kick off the festival together with director Oren Moverman and actress Jena Malone.

Organizers said Monday that actor Harvey Keitel, who was honoured in 2004, returns with Paolo Sorrentino's new movie, Youth.

Actor Jamie Dornan and director Sean Ellis will also be among those attending to introduce their project Anthropoid.

The 50th edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival opens 3 July and runs through 11 July.

The festival's grand jury, which includes U.S. cinema operator and distributor Tim League, will consider 13 movies this year for the top prize, the Crystal Globe.
