Martin Scorsese to be honoured with Humanitarian awardApril 8th, 2009 - 3:15 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 8 (ANI): Legendary director Martin Scorsese will be honored with the ‘Humanitarian’ award by the Multicultural Motion Picture Association (MPAA).
The Oscar-winner will become the second recipient of the prestigious award, as Clint Eastwood was the first person to be honoured with it last year, reports the Daily express.
According to MPAA, the ‘Jack Valenti Humanitarian Award’ is given to an “individual working in the motion picture industry whose contributions and commitment to service exemplify compassion, humanitarianism and dedication to community embodied in the award’s namesake.”
The ‘The Departed’ director will be honoured with the award during a daylong conference at Washington, D.C.’s Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture on April 21.
Martin is a well-known humanitarian in Hollywood. Since 1990, his Film Foundation has been committed to fostering greater awareness of the urgent need to preserve motion picture history. (ANI)
