Nicole Kidman - Nicole Kidman To Be Honoured By New York Film Festival

Nicole Kidman will be honoured at the New York Film Festival.

The 'Cold Mountain' actress - whose movie career has spanned nearly 30 years - will have a special tribute paid to her at the 50th annual festival on October 3, 2012.

Festival director Richard Pena said: ''Nicole Kidman is one of film's finest contemporary actresses. Since her breakthrough performance in 'To Die For' and her bold and provocative appearances in Lars Von Trier's 'Dogville', Stanley Kubrick's 'Eyes Wide Shut', and as Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry's 'The Hours', Kidman has insisted on finding roles that are complex, bold and demanding.

''We are excited to honour her with a tribute at the New York Film Festival.''

The long standing director will also be honoured at the gala event when the festival is held between September 28 and October 14.

The 45-year-old Australian will see her latest movie 'The Paperboy' - which she appears in alongside Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey - shown during the prestigious event.

The blonde actress - who rose to fame in thriller 'Dead Calm' - has since gone onto star in several hit movies including 'Moulin Rouge', and 'The Hours' which have won her three Golden Globes as well as an Academy Award.
