Pedro Almodovar will be honored at the Museum of Modern Art’s annual Film Benefit in November.

The cocktails-and-dinner event, which raises coin to ensure the continued expansion of the museum’s film collection, includes a presentation honoring the career of the helmer, whose credits include “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” “All About My Mother” and “Talk to Her.” His latest pic, “The Skin I Live In,” will screen as part of the New York Film Festival prior to its Oct. 14 release from Sony Pictures Classics.

Co-chairs for the MoMA event are Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, who have both worked multiple times with the director.

Past honorees at the annual benefit have included Baz Luhrmann, Tim Burton and Kathryn Bigelow.

The 2011 edition of the fund-raiser is set for Nov. 15 at MoMA in midtown Manhattan.
