   Actor and director Robert Redford is to receive a lifetime achievement award from New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Centre. The 77-year-old’s highlights will be celebrated at a gala in the city next April.             ROBERT REDFORD —–>

   Recent Chaplin Award recipients include Barbra Streisand and Nicole Kidman. The career honor is given to the movie industry’s most noted talents, and has also lauded Martin Scorsese, Alfred Hitchcock, and Charlie Chaplin, after whom the award is named. He was the first recipient in 1972, while last year’s winner was director Rob Reiner.

   Lesli Klainberg, the film society’s executive director, said that Redford’s contribution as an actor has been significant, but also pinpointed his work as founder of the Sundance Film Festival.

   Redford starred in All is Lost in 2013, which was shown at the New York Film Festival. His performance was greeted with a standing ovation at its Cannes Film Festival premiere last year. The filmmaker will also be honored with a Career Achievement Award by the International Documentary Association. In April 2014, Time Magazine included Redford in its annual TIME 100 as one of the Most Influential People in the World, calling him the Godfather of Indie Film.
