The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced that Jane Fonda will be honored at this year’s Film Society Gala Tribute on May 7 at Avery Fisher Hall.
The black-tie ceremony, which last year was dedicated to Al Pacino, will feature film clips and will be followed by a party at Tavern on the Green.
Fonda, who has retired from acting, has two Oscars and two New York Critics Circle best actress awards. Among her film credits are “Coming Home,” “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” “China Syndrome,” “Barefoot in the Park,” “Nine to Five” and “On Golden Pond,” a few of which she also produced.
Previous Tribute honorees include Mike Nichols, Martin Scorsese, Sean Connery, Clint Eastwood, Robert Altman, Audrey Hepburn, Bette Davis, Federico Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
