Robert Pattinson will be honored at the 2017 Deauville American Film Festival, it was announced Tuesday. Additional honorees and the festival’s lineup of film premieres have also been unveiled.

The actor was originally slated to attend the festival in September 2015 to collect the Hollywood Rising Star Award, but had to cancel his appearance due to production delays on his film The Lost City of Z. As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson also skipped the Venice Film Festival around the same time due to the scheduling conflict, but many tabloids falsely claimed he bailed on the event to avoid running into Kristen Stewart.

The French festival, which is dedicated to American cinema, will also honor Woody Harrelson, Darren Aronofsky, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Michelle Rodriguez during its 43rd edition. There will also be a number of big American movies making their French premieres at the fest, including Pattinson’s latest movie Good Time, directed by brothers Josh and Benny Safdie.

Among the other notable films being screened for the first time in the country are American Made starring Tom Cruise, The Glass Castle starring Harrelson and Brie Larson, The Zookeeper’s Wife starring Jessica Chastain, Kidnap starring Halle Berry, The Last Word starring Amanda Seyfried, 47 Meters Down starring Mandy Moore, Aronofsky’s Mother starring Jennifer Lawrence, The Only Living Boy in New York starring Jeff Bridges and Kate Beckinsale, The Promise starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, and the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It.

In addition to the premieres, a handful of films will be playing in competition. This year’s roster of movies vying for awards include A Ghost Story starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, Ingrid Goes West starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen, Gifted starring Chris Evans, and more. The Deauville American Film Festival runs from September 1-10 in Deauville, France.
