Los Angeles: The New York Film Festival will honour actors Ethan Hawke and Richard Gere this year.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced that the actors would be guest of honours at the fest's "An Evening With..." series on two different dates.

Hawke's tribute will take place on September 30, during which he will participate in an "intimate dinner and a conversation between the guests and NYFF Director Kent Jones" at the Stanley H Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center.

Gere will receive the same honour on October 8.

Hawke directed the documentary 'Seymour: An Introduction' which focuses on the life of piano prodigy Seymour Bernstein.

Gere starred in Oren Moverman's 'Time Out of Mind' as a homeless man estranged from his daughter.

"An Evening With" is held to recognise "the work of individuals who have made significant artistic contributions to film culture, and will continue to do so in the future." It will benefit The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Previous honourees include Nicole Kidman, David Cronenberg, Cate Blanchett and Ralph Fiennes.

This year's festival runs from September 26 to October 12.
