- Story Text: During the opening ceremony of the 33rd Jerusalem Film Festival on Thursday (July 7), the Oscar-winning director, Quentin Tarantino received an honorary award from Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat.
Tarantino is known for his gritty, edgy and often bloodied tales of revenge in films such as "Reservoir Dogs," "Kill Bill" and his most recent Western, "The Hateful Eight".
He has been a passionate film fan even before he turned to writing and directing movies, and even did a stint as an usher in a movie theater.
He has won two screen-writing Oscars, for "Pulp Fiction" and "Django Unchained".
