London: `Gravity` helmer Alfonso Cuaron is set to be feted for his career achievements at the 2014 Visual Effects Society Awards.

The 52-year-old filmmaker, who has praised heavily for his sci-fi thriller `Gravity`, will be honoured with the Visionary Award in Los Angeles on February 12, reported Contactmusic.

"Alfonso pushes the known boundaries of filmmaking. He has been at the forefront in using visual effects to tell remarkable, highly nuanced stories that change the way we think about what is possible to achieve," Visual Effects Society, board chairperson Jeffrey A Okun said.

"Throughout his career, Alfonso has shown a rare talent for using cutting-edge technology to engage us in his deeply visceral storytelling and create unforgettable cinematic experiences," he added.

Cuaron will follow in the footsteps of previous honourees Christopher Nolan and Ang Lee, who claimed the accolade this year.
