Director James Ivory will be honored with a French Institute Alliance Francaise Trophee des Arts Award by actress Uma Thurman on Nov. 27th at New York City’s Gotham Hall.

The moviemaker is known for directing and/or producing such movies as Quartet (1981), with Isabelle Adjani; Mr. and Mrs. Bridge (1990), with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward; and A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries (1998), with Kris Kristofferson and Jane Birkin.

“With this Trophee des Arts, the French community in New York celebrates the most Parisian of all New York filmmakers and salutes the 50th anniversary of James Ivory’s first film,” notes Marie-Monique Steckel, FIAF’s president.

An exclusive preview of Ivory’s next movie, The City of Your Final Destination, starring Anthony Hopkins and French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, will be screened during the gala evening.
