The British star will collect the Actor Tribute and Miller the Director Tribute at the 24th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City on December 1.
As previously announced, Netflix’s news-making chief content officer Ted Sarandos will receive the Industry Tribute.
Swinton most recently appeared in Snowpiercer and her credits include The Grand Budapest Hotel, Broken Flowers, The Deep End, Orlando, Only Lovers Left Alive, and Michael Clayton, which earned her a best supporting actress Oscar in 2008.
Miller will be in awards contention this season for Foxcatcher, his third feature after Capote and Moneyball.
“We are excited to have Tilda Swinton and Bennett Miller as this year’s Actor and Director Honorees,” said Joana Vicente, executive director of IFP and the Made In NY Media Center.
“Swinton’s broad and iconoclastic body of work permeates the indie film landscape, thrilling and challenging audiences. Miller’s films, both narrative and documentary, have similarly made an indelible mark on the independent scene to great critical acclaim.”
