Helen Mirren and Robert Redford will receive Actress and Actor Tributes at the 25th Anniversary IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards on Nov. 30, the organization announced Tuesday.

Anonymous Content founder and managing partner Steve Golin will receive the Industry Tribute at the event that is being held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Todd Haynes had been previously announced as the Director Tribute recipient.

“We are thrilled to recognize the careers and achievements of such lauded industry veterans as Robert Redford, Helen Mirren and Steve Golin as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of IFP and the Made in NY Media Center. “To celebrate these individuals who have contributed so much to the independent film community and to the entertainment world at large — and in such a landmark year for the Gothams — is truly an honor.”

Redford made his mark with early breakout roles in 1969’s “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and “The String,” which won seven Oscars, including Best Picture. Redford has also won a Directors Guild of America Award, a Golden Globe Award and the Academy Award for Best Director for his feature film directorial debut, “Ordinary People.” He can currently be seen in “A Walk in the Woods” costarring Nick Nolte.

Mirren began her career in theater, in the role of Cleopatra at the National Youth Theatre. Since her breakout film role in 1980’s “The Long Good Friday,” she has starred in multiple films, including “The Queen,” for which she received an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and BAFTA Award for Best Actress.

She appeared last spring in “Woman in Gold” and is now in Toronto promoting this fall’s biopic “Trumbo” as well as next year’s drone-warfare drama “Eye in the Sky.”

Golin has worked across feature films, television, commercials, music videos and new media, and is the Founder and Managing Partner of Anonymous Content, a production and management company representing directors, writers and performers. He also has over 50 film and TV credits, which include “Babel,” “Being John Malkovich,” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Currently, he is the executive producer of HBO’s anthology series, “True Detective.”

Previous honorees include Tilda Swinton, Jeff Skoll, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, and David O. Russell.

The Gotham Independent Film Awards by IFP are the first honors of the film awards season, selected by distinguished juries. The deadline for submitting entries to the Gotham Awards is Sept. 17, with juries selecting the winners in all competitive categories except the Audience Award. Nominees will be announced Oct. 22.
