LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Directors Guild of America says it plans to honor Milos Forman with its Lifetime Achievement Award for Distinguished Achievement in Motion Picture Direction.

The prize is to be presented at the 65th annual DGA Awards Feb. 2 in Los Angeles.

"It is a tremendous privilege to present the DGA Lifetime Achievement Award for feature film to one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, Milos Forman," President Taylor Hackford said in a statement Wednesday. "No matter what subject or genre he tackles, Milos finds the universality of the human experience in every story, allowing us -- his rapt audience -- to recognize ourselves within the struggle for free expression and self-determination that Milos so aptly portrays on the silver screen."

Forman's films include "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Amadeus," "Valmont," "The People vs. Larry Flynt," "Man in the Moon" and "Goya's Ghosts."
