Dustin Hoffman and filmmaker Sofia Coppola are to be honored at the Independent Filmmaker Project’s Gotham Awards next month (Nov17).
The actor will be feted with the IFP Actor Tribute, while Coppola will receive the IFP’s Director Tribute on 27 November (17) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
“We are thrilled to present Dustin Hoffman with the Actor Tribute…,” Joana Vicente, executive director of IFP and the Made in NY Media Center, says. “Dustin’s wide range of roles… and the creative choices he has embodied in (his) complex characters, has firmly placed him amongst the most compelling actors to have graced the screen (sic).”
“We are equally delighted to present Sofia with the Director Tribute this year,” she continues. “Sofia continues to shatter the glass lens in our industry… Sofia has made a lasting contribution to the art of film.”
During the event, Nicole Kidman will also be honored with the Actress Tribute.
Previous honorees include Amy Adams, Helen Mirren, and Robert Redford.
