Her most famous roles include rebellious waitress Louise in 1991's Thelma and Louise and her Oscar-winning performance as Sister Helen in 1995 film Dead Man Walking.
Meanwhile, The Fifth Element director Besson, 50, has landed the festival's visionary award for his "relentless" exploration of film.
