"Words cannot express my gratitude to the French Minister of Culture, Madame Audrey Azoulay, for this recognition. I feel overwhelmed by this distinction and it humbles me,"
said Schifrin, who was previously named a Chevalier (Knight) by the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

The Cinematheque Festival opens with, and will feature films from Schifrin’s career, including screenings of COOL HAND LUKE, COOGAN’S BLUFF, and BULLITT. On November 9th, Lalo will be participating in signing, and a special audience Q&A before the screening of DIRTY HARRY, which will feature a special musical performance by Schifrin. The festival runs from November 9-14.

The same week the Festival du Cinéma & Musique de Film de la Baule will also be screening films from Schifrin’s catalog. On June 12, the Baule Festival will pay tribute to Schifrin as part of their Cine-Concert and awards ceremony.
