Robbins, Kuras set for Gothams fete


Tim Robbins will receive an inaugural humanitarian tribute and director of photography Ellen Kuras will earn a below the line honor at the IFP's 16th annual Gotham Awards, set to be hosted by comedian David Cross on Nov. 29.

The Gothams have forged new partnerships with the Museum of Modern Art (which will screen the Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You nominees) and the New York Times (participating in a TimesTalks Panel featuring Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu). will webcast portions of the awards ceremony, and the video Web site Revver will help develop "What Independent Film Means To Me ...," a contest in which five 60-second films will be shown at the ceremony, online and on NYC-TV (Channel 25) in the New York area.
