New York Film Festival to honor Richard Gere, Ethan Hawke
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is set to honor two actors during this year’s New York Film Festival. First up, Ethan Hawke will sit down for “An Evening With” segment on September 30, during which he will participate in an “intimate dinner and a conversation between the guests and NYFF Director Kent Jones,” according to a press release.
Then, on Oct. 8, Richard Gere will do the same. For the festival, which is in its 52nd year, the “An Evening With” segment is meant to recognize “the work of individuals who have made significant artistic contributions to film culture, and will continue to do so in the future,” per the release. Past honorees include Nicole Kidman, David Cronenberg, Cate Blanchett, and Ralph Fiennes, among others.
Both Hawke and Gere have films in this year’s festival, which runs from Sept. 26 to Oct. 12. Hawke is attending as a director for the documentary Seymour: An Introduction, while Gere stars in Oren Moverman’s Time Out of Mind.
