Richard Linklater to Receive Director Tribute at 2013 Gotham Awards

The indie veteran will be honored as part of the Gothams' 23rd annual kudofest

The Gotham Independent Film Awards have named indie stalwart Richard Linklater as the recipient of the kudos’ annual director tribute.

Filmmaker will be honored alongside Katherine Oliver, the commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, who takes home the Gothams’ industry tribute. A couple of more tribute honorees remain to be announced for the 23rd annual ceremony, presented by New York-based nonprofit Independent Filmmaker Project.

Linklater had an arthouse hit earlier this year with “Before Midnight,” the third in a trilogy of films that began in 1995 with “Before Sunrise” and continued in 2004 with “Before Sunset.” The director-writer-producer scores the Gotham honor for a body of work that also includes “Dazed and Confused,” the 1993 pic set for a special anniversary screening at this year’s New York Film Festival, as well as “Slacker,” “School of Rock,” “A Scanner Darkly” and “Bernie,” among other titles. He’s also the a.d. of the Austin Film Society, which he founded in 1985.

Past recipients of the Gothams’ director tribute include David Cronenberg, Mira Nair and last year’s honoree, David O. Russell.

The Gothams’ tribute awards will be handed out in a ceremony that also will crown winners of the kudos’ seven competitive categories including feature, doc, actress and actor. Event is set for Dec. 2 at Cipriani Wall Street in downtown Manhattan.
