NEW YORK, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- The Independent Film Project will honor the career of actor Matt Dillon during its 15th annual Gotham Awards ceremony in New York.

IFP will bestow six other awards -- Best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Ensemble Cast, Breakthrough Director, Breakthrough Actor and Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You -- during the Nov. 30 ceremony.

Dillon most recently appeared in the film "Crash," which was released on home video Tuesday.

"We've all watched Matt grow up on camera, but I don't know how many of us have really stopped and taken a long look at the tremendously accomplished body of work that he continues to build," IFP Executive Director Michelle Byrd said in a news release.

Among Dillon's many feature films are "The Outsiders," "My Bodyguard," "Drugstore Cowboy" and "There's Something About Mary."

Previous recipients of the award include Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Don Cheadle, Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon, John Turturro and Sigourney Weaver.
