Jude Law and Sir Michael Gambon will be honoured at the British Independent Film Awards.

The 'Alfie' actor is set to pick up the Variety Award for helping the British film industry gain international notoriety, while 'Harry Potter' star Michael will receive the Richard Harris Award for ''outstanding contribution'' to British film.

Twice-nominated for an Oscar, prolific actor Jude is currently shooting crime flick 'Don Hemingway'. Previous recipients of the Variety Award include Sir Michael Caine, Dame Helen Mirren, and Sir Kenneth Branagh.

Sir Michael is being honoured for his lengthy career, which spans over 60 years. His latest role was in Dustin Hoffman's upcoming 'Quartet' and he can currently be found on stage in London's West End in 'All That Fall'.

The Richard Harris Award was created in 2002 years ago in memory of the late Irish actor, best known for playing King Arthur in the 1967 film 'Camelot'.

Michael took over his role as Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore in the 'Harry Potter' franchise in 2004 following his death.

Bob Hoskins, Daniel Day-Lewis and Helena Bonham Carter are among the previous winners of the prize.

The British Independent Film Awards will be held on 9 December in London.
