Depp To Be Honoured At Bahamas Festival

Film bosses in the Bahamas are set to honour celebrity resident Johnny Depp by presenting him with a coveted prize at the island nation's upcoming film festival.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star has been selected to receive the prestigious Career Achievement Award at the 2009 Bahamas International Film Festival (Biff) in Nassau.

The festival's patron Sir Sean Connery will be on hand to hand over the prize, which will be an extra special accolade for Depp, who owns his own paradise retreat in the Bahamas.
