Non-profit membership organization Film Independent will bestow Clint Eastwood this year's Spirit of Independence Award for being "an inspiration to filmmakers and film lovers alike."

Recognized his abundant contribution in film industry, Film Independent, a non-profit membership organization supporting artists who embody diversity, innovation, and uniqueness of vision, has delightfully named the honoree of its 2007 Spirit of Independence Award.

The veteran actor/filmmaker will be given the award at this year's Los Angeles Film Festival set to be held on June 28 with presenting the honor. As part of the upcoming occasion, there will also be a presentation of documentary feature "Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends" which Eastwood executive produces for Netflix.

"Clint Eastwood has been called an icon, a maverick, a legend and every superlative in between, yet it's utterly impossible to encapsulate the talents and accomplishments of his independent spirit and his singular vision for honest storytelling," Film Independent executive director Dawn Hudson remarked. "We are thrilled to celebrate this remarkable artist for his independent voice and daring career choices that have been an inspiration to filmmakers and film lovers alike."
