The movie star will be the guest of honour at a black-tie gala dinner at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, California on 8 December (12), when he will accept his latest accolade from Douglas himself.

The movie veteran, who the award is named after, says of De Niro, "I am a great fan, not only for what he does on screen, but also for establishing the Tribeca Film Festival... It brought joy back to lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11."

De?Niro will join an illustrious group of past recipients of the award, including Kirk's son Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Ed Harris, John Travolta and Kirk Douglas himself.
