The Intl. Documentary Assn. has tapped “An Inconvenient Truth” to receive its Pare Lorentz award as the film that best represents the activist spirit and lyrical vision of its namesake.

The film’s director, Davis Guggenheim, will accept the nod at the org’s Distinguished Documentary Achievement Awards ceremonies Dec. 8 at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood.

The Pare Lorentz Foundation sponsors the award in memory of the filmmaker, who was the first recipient of the IDA Career Achievement Award in 1984.  

“Truth,” produced by Laurie David, Lawrence Bender and Scott Z. Burns, has grossed $23.8 million domestically and $11.3 million in foreign markets.

“Davis Guggenheim has earned both the respect and heartfelt thanks of our members,” said IDA director Sandra Ruch. “His remarkably ambitious film clarifies a complex environmental issue that affects everyone’s future.”
