Legendary Hollywood icon Robert De Niro will be honored with the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Mr. Douglas announced, “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 be the seventh recipient of the award, following previous recipients Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, John Travolta, Ed Harris and, of course, Kirk Douglas himself.

The award will be presented on Saturday, December 8 in Santa Barbara at the Bacara Resort & Spa. Tickets for the black-tie gala are available. For more information, visit the SBIFF official site.
