Hurd to receive Ziskin award

New York's Athena festival names honorees

Producer Gale Anne Hurd will receive the Laura Ziskin Lifetime Achievement Award from Barnard College’s Athena Film Festival.

Film Society at Lincoln Center exec director Rose Kuo, Paley Center for Media topper Pat Mitchell, film critic Molly Haskell (“From Reverence to Rape: The Treatment of Women in the Movies”) and helmer Ava DuVernay (“Middle of Nowhere”) also will be feted at the fest, which honors femmes in the film industry and focuses on pics that showcase female leadership.

Hurd is honored for a body of work that includes “The Walking Dead” and “The Terminator.” The Ziskin award was inaugurated last year and awarded posthumously to Ziskin (“Spider-Man”).

The third annual festival is presented by Barnard’s Athena Center for Leadership Studies and by Women and Hollywood, the industry site run by Melissa Silverstein. Lineup of films to be screened in the upcoming fest has yet to be announced.

The Athena Film Festival runs Feb. 7-10 in uptown Manhattan.
