Israel fest to honor Danny DeVito

Winkler to receive lifetime achievement award

Danny DeVito will be honored with the Lifetime Visionary Award Oct. 29 at the opening night gala and premiere presentation of the 23rd Israel Film Festival at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater.

The evening will also see Irwin Winkler receive the lifetime achievement nod and Edward Zwick feted with the Israel Film Festival kudo for achievement in film.

The event will also screen scenes from Zwick’s upcoming release “Defiance,” starring Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber.

The fest already made a stop in L.A. in June and will head to Miami after New York, donating a portion of its proceeds to the Israel Film Festival’s student film scholarship benefiting six film schools in Israel.

Gotham edition of the fest runs through Nov. 13.
