Festival chairman Harold Matzner said: "With more than four decades' worth of memorable film, television and stage performances, Helen Mirren continues to be one of the most outstanding actresses of her generation."

The award - which has previously been presented to Javier Bardem and Gary Oldman - will be given to Dame Helen on January 5.

Dame Helen currently stars alongside Sir Anthony Hopkins in the biopic Hitchcock.
