IFP says Bravo, Altman

Helmer honored with lifetime achievement award

Robert Altman will receive this year’s Bravo lifetime achievement award at the 10th annual Independent Film Project’s Gotham Awards Sept. 20 in Manhattan.

“For us, what’s interesting about Altman is that he’s sort of an outsider working within the industry,” IFP exec director Michelle Byrd told Daily Variety. “He’s a huge inspiration in terms of volume and output of work and in terms of really sticking to his own vision.”

Altman’s films include “Nashville,” “Short Cuts,” “The Player” and “MASH.” He’s garnered four Oscar nominations and he received the Directors Guild of America lifetime achievement award in 1994.

Last year’s award went to Meryl Streep. Past honorees include Miramax co-chairs Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino and Sidney Lumet.

Among sponsors of this year’s Gotham Awards are ABC, Bravo, the Film and Arts Network, Entertainment Weekly, HBO, IFC, the New York Times and Variety.
