French film director and producer Luc Besson has been honored with a top award in France for his prolific career.

"Fifth Element" producer Besson, had been awarded a Gold medal at the Cesars, France's equivalent to the Oscars, for his "exceptional artistic and entrepreneurial contribution over the past three decades."

According to the French Academy of Cinema Arts and Techniques, the prize, awarded this year for the first time, ahead of the Cesars ceremony, symbolizes the gratitude of French cinema towards the man who has upheld French excellence.

Besson will be in China this April to head the jury of the Tiantan Awards at the upcoming Beijing International Film Festival, now in its fifth edition.
