`Twilight` fame Robert Pattinson is all set to be honoured at the Mill Valley Film Festival which will take place from October 3-13. The actor is set to be honoured for his work in the A24 drama `The Lighthouse`, reported Variety.

The film will also receive a special screening on October 5 during the ceremony. Directed by Robert Eggers, `The Lighthouse` also stars Willem Dafoe. Meanwhile, Pattinson will also be participating in a Q&A session following the screening.

The festival will open with the screening of Michael B. Jordan`s `Just Mercy` which stars Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, and Rob Morgan. The legal drama is based on a memoir by attorney/civil rights advocate Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) who sets out to free a wrongly convicted man (Foxx) from death row.

Pattinson, on the work front, will also appear in Netflix`s `The King` which also stars Timothee Chalamet and Joel Edgerton. The movie was recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival. He is also set to feature in `Tenet` which will premiere in 2020. The actor has also landed the titular role in `The Batman` which will hit theatres in 2021.
