Anjelica Huston and half-brother Danny Huston are to celebrate their family's film legacy at the TCM Classic Film Festival.

The two actors will present Hollywood Dynasty: The Hustons on April 24.

The tribute will include screenings of three films and question-and-answer sessions.

The festival, which is open to the public, will be held April between 22 and 25 in Los Angeles.

Among the featured films is a recently restored version of 1948's The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre, which the pair's father John Huston wrote and directed.

"So many films get forgotten about and deteriorate, so it makes my family and myself very happy to see the kind of restoration Turner (Classic Movies) puts into these movies," Anjelica, 58, said.. "It's very exciting, like a renaissance."

Anjelica said this is the first time that she and Danny will have films in the same festival, and that having their work shown alongside their father's "makes us feel sort of dynastically active, so it's a lovely thing".

Anjelica said she was particularly pleased that her father's work is being preserved and can reach new audiences.

"My father's films are still very much a part of the American conscience," she said. "It's so encouraging to see these films reissued."
