San Diego Film Festival's Tribute To Judd Apatow

Judd Apatow, the “This Is 40″ director will receive the Visionary Filmmaker Award during San Diego Film Festival's gala on October 3rd, 2013.

Judd Apatow is indisputably one of the most supremely talented and beloved contemporary filmmakers working today,” said festival directors Tonya Mantooth and Dale Strack in a statement. “His body of work transcends a typical moviegoing experience and enters the zeitgeist in a way rarely seen. On behalf of San Diego, we are beyond thrilled to honor him with a much-deserved award.”

Apatow has directed, among other comedies, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up." and "Funny People." His latest directorial effort, "This Is 40," was released in December and was billed as a “sort-of sequel” to "Knocked Up." Apatow also served as a producer on "Bridesmaids" and "Pineapple Express."

The gala will be held on October 3rd, at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Last year’s Visionary Filmmaker honoree was "Promised Land" director Gus Van Sant.
