Colin Farrell is to receive the Palm Springs International Film Festival's Desert Palm Achievement Award for his "career-best" performance in Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin.

Farrell, who is tipped for an Oscar nomination alongside writer-director McDonagh and co-stars Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon, will receive the award at the California festival on 5 January.

In a statement, Festival Chairman Harold Matzner said: "Colin Farrell reunites with Brendan Gleeson and director Martin McDonagh in the masterful comedy The Banshees of Inisherin.

"Farrell gives a memorable performance as Pádraic, a sweet-souled Irish farmer trying to save his lifelong friendship.

"For this career-best performance, we are honoured to present the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor to Colin Farrell."

Farrell and McDonagh were both honoured at the Venice International Film Festival in September for their work on The Banshees of Inisherin, with Farrell winning Best Actor and McDonagh winning Best Screenplay.

The Banshees of Inisherin is currently in cinemas. The Oscar nominations will be announced on 24 January.
