The award will be presented during the festival's "Conversation with Richard Gere" program, a discussion with Gere about his life and career, moderated by the festival's honorary chairman, Alec Baldwin.

Gere's film credits include "Arbitrage," "Days of Heaven," "Pretty Woman," "American Gigolo," "An Officer and a Gentleman" and "Chicago."

He also is an accomplished musician, photographer and humanitarian, advocating for human rights with organizations that include The International Campaign for Tibet, Survival International and Healing the Divide.

We are thrilled to present him with the Golden Starfish Award for Lifetime Achievement in Acting," Karen Arikian, the festival's executive director, said in a statement.
