Morris is set to be honored at the gala event hosted by Penn Jillette on Nov. 2 at BRIC in Brooklyn.

Journalist and author Kathryn Schulz will present Morris with the award. Previously announced Critics’ Choice impact award recipient Joe Berlinger will be presented with his award by Damien Echols, one of the West Memphis Three, the focus of Berlinger’s “Paradise Lost” documentary trilogy.

Morris’ honors include an Oscar win for “The Fog of War” and the grand jury prize at Sundance Film Festival for “A Brief History of Time.” His work has gained recognition by the National Society of Film Critics and the National Board of Review and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

The director’s latest film, “Wormwood,” will be released by Netflix as a six-part event on Dec. 15. In addition, Morris has prepared a non-episodic theatrical version with a single intermission.
