Jodie Foster will be honored with the Laura Ziskin Lifetime Achievement Award at the 5th annual Athena Film Festival to be held in February.
The 49-year-old actress, who has already got two acting Oscars, was given the Golden Globes' lifetime honor, the Cecil B. DeMille Award, in 2013, and is currently working on her fourth directing gig with George Clooney and Julia Roberts on 'Money Monster,' Deadline.com reported.
The awards, presented by fest organizer Barnard College's Athena Center for Leadership Studies and Women and Hollywood, is given in Ziskin's name to a woman in the film industry whose leadership demonstrates vision and courage and sets a standard for other women to emulate.
With the honor, Foster would be the third recipient after Sherry Lansing and Gale Anne Hurd.
The Athena fest, which would take place from February 5-8 in NYC, will also honor HBO Documentary Films President Sheila Nevins, writer-director-producer Gina Prince-Bythewood and producer Cathy Schulman.
