Miller to receive top French honour

The Oscar-winning moviemaker, whose films include Happy Feet, Witches of Eastwick and Mad Max, has been named a recipient of the prestigious Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, one of the country’s highest accolades.

The award will be presented to Miller at a French Film Festival event in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.

French Consulate official Jean-Jacques Garnier says, “George Miller is a well-known director in France… (The award is in recognition of) his life achievement as (a) director and what he gave to cinema in Australia and around the world.”
