PARIS (AP) — The French film industry showered honors on “Timbuktu” at Friday’s 40th annual Cesar awards — France’s equivalent of the Oscars — selecting it as best movie, one in seven prizes it scooped up days before competing in Hollywood for an Oscar for best foreign film.

Abderrahmane Sissako, a Mauritanian, took best director’s prize for “Timbuktu,” set in the ancient north Malian city when it was under control of Muslim extremists.
