The Commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment will receive this year’s Gotham Awards Industry Tribute. Katherine Oliver will be honored December 2 at the 23rd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC. The Industry Tribute is awarded to a career veteran who has significantly influenced the motion picture industry, and Oliver — in addition to overseeing all film, TV, and digital production in New York City — has long been a champion of independent film and media. “We are honored to dedicate our 2013 Gotham Industry Tribute to Katherine Oliver, who has made an indelible impact in the entertainment industry in New York City and beyond,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of the Independent Filmmaker Project. Nominees for the IFP Gotham Awards will be announced October 24.
