Judd Apatow Recieves San Diego Film Festival Award

Posted: Jul. 16th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

It's been a little while since the San Diego Film Festival was in town, but Judd Apatow is set to receive this year's Visionary Filmmaker award on October 3rd in a ceremony at Bal Boa Park's beautiful Museum of Modern Art. The festival itself will carry on from the 2nd to the 6th and with it will come a host of truly awesome films, not the least of which is Apatow's "This is 40."

Director Judd Apatow will be honored with the Visionary Filmmaker award during the San Diego Film Festival in October, the SD Film Foundation said Thursday.

"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.
