This celebration of Ms. Streisand is the continuation of a 40-year tradition at the Film Society that honors a distinguished film artist whose body of work and lifetime of achievements represent a significant contribution to the art of film. Ms. Streisand, a truly rare and groundbreaking talent, is the first woman artist to receive credit as writer, director, producer and star of a major feature film (Yentl). She is also the first female film director to receive a Kennedy Center Honor.
The event will be attended by a host of notable guests and celebrities honoring Ms. Streisand's film career. Filled with many surprises and show-stopping performances, the tribute will culminate with the presentation of the Chaplin Award to Ms. Streisand by President Bill Clinton.
