Acclaimed actors Helen Mirren and Robert Redford will be honoured at the 25th Anniversary IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards.
They are made part of the Awards as Actress and Actor Tributes, reported Aceshowbiz. “We are thrilled to recognise the careers and achievements of such lauded industry veterans as Robert Redford, Helen Mirren, and Steve Golin as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of IFP and the Made in NY Media Center.
“To celebrate these individuals who have contributed so much to the independent film community and to the entertainment world at large – and in such a landmark year for the Gothams – is truly an honour.”
Redford, 79, is selected because he “has made an indelible mark on the independent film world and is a true artist, in addition to being a dedicated environmentalist, businessman, and political activist.”
Mirren, 70, is deemed “one of the most internationally acclaimed performers of our time.”
At the event, Mirren and Redford will join founder and managing partner of Anonymous Content Steve Golin who will receive the Industry Tribute.
Todd Haynes was previously announced as Director Tribute recipient. The event will be held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on November 30.
