Isabel Coixet Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres

The French Minister of Culture and Communication, Fleur Pellerin, has distinguished Isabel Coixet
by awarding her the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, in recognition of her contribution to
the world of art and culture.

EWA's Honorary President, Isabel Coixet will receive the medal from the French government.

Very few Spanish women have so far earned this distinction, which is intended for those people 
who have stood out for their creations in the fields of art and communication, and for contributing to
 the spread of arts and letters in France and elsewhere.

Isabel Coixet, joins an illustrious list of filmmakers decorated by l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres including
 Jorge Luis Borges, BobDylan, Ang Lee, Terry Gilliam, Paul Auster, Daft Punk, Cate Blanchet and Pablo
 Trapero, among others.
