The Film Society of Lincoln Center will present French star Catherine Deneuve with the Society's Chaplin Award at a gala event to be held in New York City on April 2.

Deneuve, the child of two French actors, has spent over 50 years in the film business, beginning with the 1960 film "The Door Slams" and garnering acclaim for her turn in the French musical film "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg."

Over her career, Deneuve worked with such iconic directors as Roman Polanski, Terence Young, Tony Scott and François Truffaut, under whose direction she won a César Award for "The Last Metro."  She won another César and was nominated for an Academy Award for "Indochine" and in 2008, she filmed her 100th film, "Un conte de Noël."

The Film Society of Lincoln Center held its first annual gala in 1972 when it honored Charles Chaplin.  The award was later renamed in honor of the famous silent film actor, and has been bestowed upon such notables as Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini, Elizabeth Taylor and Meryl Streep.  Deneuve is the 39th recipient of the award.
