Steve Buscemi will present an award in honour of the late James Gandolfini on December 2 in New York, Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) top brass said.

The event will take place at the 23rd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani Wall Street hosted by Nick Kroll.

“We are honoured to pay tribute to a man whose life and work has inspired and moved so many who knew him personally, or through his vast body of work on the stage and screen, where he collaborated with so many independent artists to bring to life unforgettable, iconic characters,” said IFP executive director Joana Vicente.

Gandolfini can currently be seen in Fox Searchlight’s Nicole Holofcener drama Enough Said opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
