Michael Caine to receive Variety Award

Actor to be honored at British Indie Film Awards

Michael Caine has been confirmed as the recipient of the Variety Award at this year’s British Independent Film Awards, which takes place Dec. 6 in London.

Caine, who earned Oscars for “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Cider House Rules,” is being recognized for his contributions to the film biz.

Steven Gaydos, Variety’s executive editor — features, hailed Caine for his “versatility and durability” and his “passionate and generous commitments to new filmmakers and edgy film projects.”

Caine’s latest pic, urban Western “Harry Brown,” was recently picked up in the U.S. by Samuel Goldwyn Films, which will release the pic next year.

As previously announced, Daniel Day-Lewis will be honored with the Richard Harris Award for outstanding contribution to British film by an actor.

BIFA also announced Monday that it has added production designer Kave Quinn and actor-director-writer Nick Moran to this year’s jury.
