Robert De Niro is to be honoured with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's seventh annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film.

The movie star will be the guest of honour at a black-tie gala dinner at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, California on 8 December (12), when he will accept his latest accolade from Douglas himself.

The movie veteran, who the award is named after, says of De Niro, "I am a great fan, not only for what he does on screen, but also for establishing the Tribeca Film Festival... It brought joy back to lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11."

De Niro will join an illustrious group of past recipients of the award, including Kirk's son Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Ed Harris, John Travolta and Kirk Douglas himself.
