James Caan is slated to be the toast of the 10th annual Marrakech International Film Festival. The "Godfather" star will be on hand to kick off the festival with the opening night screening of Malcolm Venville's "Henry's Crime," in which he stars alongside Keanu Reeves, who will also make an appearance. In addition, Caan will be the subject of a Tribute on behalf of the festival. Other honorees this year include Harvey Keitel, Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Mohamed Abderrahmane Tazi.

This year's event promises to be a starry one. Francis Ford Coppola will host a Master Class for both film students and festival-goers. John Malkovich is heading the Competition Jury, which includes Gabriel Byrne, Maggie Cheung, Gael Garcia Bernal, Benoit Jacquot, Eva Mendes and Faouzi Bensaidi, among its members.

Sigourney Weaver, to whom the festival paid tribute in 2008, meanwhile will also be in attendance to act as President of the festival's first ever short film jury. Xavier Beuvois, Adil Fadili and Emmanuelle Seigner are among those who will join her on the jury. The contest winner will be granted a 300.000 dirham prize (about $37,200), with all the proceeds to go to the funding of a second short film that will have to be completed within three years.
