“Rain Man” director Barry Levinson will be honored at the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary film festival in July, organizers said on Wednesday.

Levinson, who won an Oscar as best director for the 1988 movie, will “receive the Crystal Globe for Outstanding Contribution to World Cinema,” the festival organisers said in a statement.
