BAFTA to honor Hanks with Kubrick award

Portion of proceeds from gala to go to nonprofit

HOLLYWOOD — Tom Hanks will receive the Stanley Kubrick award for excellence in film from the Los Angeles branch of British Academy of Film and TV Arts at the 13th Britannia Awards on Nov. 4 at the BevHilton.

“Mr. Hanks has distinguished himself as a truly outstanding actor and international film star with a deep body of work, and as a visionary filmmaker and producer,” BAFTA/LA chairman Gary Dartnall said, describing Hanks as “one of the most respected individuals in all of the entertainment business.”

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s gala will go to New Directions, a nonprofit organization that provides drug and alcohol detoxification and rehabilitation for homeless men and women veterans in Los Angeles County. Other proceeds will benefit the BAFTA/LA Heritage Archive, the BAFTA/LA-UCLA Scholarship Program and Community Outreach Programs.
