In addition to the award, Schnabel will participate in a conversation with Texas film critic Christopher Kelly and the art museum’s Chief Curator Michael Auping. Following their discussion, a screening of Schnabel’s "Before Night Falls" will take place. Before Schnabel accepts his award the next day, LSFF will host screenings of his films "Basquiat" and "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly."

The 8th annual LSFF will take place from November 6-9.
