Actress Nicole Kidman is set to be honored for her career achievements at the upcoming New York Film Festival in October.

Bosses behind the Film Society of Lincoln Center will celebrate the 45 year old's work during a special gala on October 3.

Program director Richard Pena, who will also be feted during the 17-day event, says, "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, as well as her awarding-winning portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry's The Hours, Kidman has insisted on finding roles that are complex, bold and demanding.

"We are excited to honor her with a tribute at the New York Film Festival."

The New York Film Festival will begin on September 28.
