The Gotham Film & Media Institute has set the late actor, filmmaker and activist Sidney Poitier for the Icon Trbute at the 32nd annual Gotham Awards, taking place live and in person at NYC’s Cipriani Wall Street on November 28.
The Icon Tribute was conceived by the Gotham Awards Advisory Committee in 2021 to call attention to the boldness, artistry and impact of a filmmaker from a historically excluded community whose work has not been previously recognized by the organization.
Playwright and filmmaker Kathleen Collins last year became its inaugural recipient. The Gotham’s posthumous recognition of Poitier comes following the Toronto Film Festival premiere and September release of Sidney, a Critics Choice Documentary Award-winning Apple documentary directed by Oscar nom Reginald Hudlin, which honors the Hollywood legend and his legacy, as a star at the center of both Hollywood and the Civil Rights Movement.Read more on deadline.com
