Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann will be honoured by New York's Museum of Modern Art next month (Nov08) with a tribute gala.
Hugh Jackman, Lurhmann's compatriot and the star of his new movie Australia, will host the fund-raising event, which coincides with the film's release.
All money raised will go towards the museum's film collection, which was established in 1935 and holds more than 22,000 movies.
