      By Ians

      German filmmaker Wim Wenders will be feted with an honorary Golden Bear for lifetime achievement at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, where 10 of his movies will also be shown.

      "In dedicating the homage to Wim Wenders, we honour one of the most noted contemporary auteurs. His cross-genre and multifaceted work as a filmmaker, photographer and author has shaped our living memory of cinema, and continues to inspire other filmmakers," quoted Dieter Kosslick, director of the Berlinale, as saying.

      Wenders, described by the festival as one of cinema's great innovators, made his feature debut in 1970 with "Summer in the City". He has made around 50 films in his career.

      In his early days in the industry, he influenced New German Cinema. He made road movies like "Alice in the Cities" (1973) and "Kings of the Road" (1976), and also has worked in the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia.

      A widely awarded filmmaker, Wenders's 3D project "Pina" was also nominated for an Academy Award.
