Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey will receive a tribute award at the Napa Valley Film Festival in November.

His latest film “Gold,” an adventure drama directed by Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan, will screen at the festival on at 9 a.m. Nov. 10.

After the screening, McConaughey will be presented with the Caldwell Vineyards Maverick Actor Tribute for his outstanding contributions to the art of acting and cinematic story-telling.

“Vintner John Caldwell is the original Napa Valley maverick winemaker, and Matthew McConaughey is the epitome of a maverick when it comes to his work in the film industry,” said Napa Valley Film Festival co-founder and director Marc Lhormer. “Matthew boldly inhabits each character that he plays on screen, and we are just delighted to showcase his latest film and to honor him at the festival this year.”

The festival will run from Nov. 9-13 and feature 120 new independent films, industry panels, studio sneak previews, over 300 filmmakers present at screenings.

Christmas Release Date for ‘Gold’

Could Matthew McConaughey be headed for another Oscar, just three years after taking home the Best Actor trophy for Dallas Buyers Club? The “McConnaisance” has been good to the Magic Mike actor, as he’s been able to stretch his talents like never before from sci-fi epics like Interstellar to historical dramas like Free State of Jones. One of his most recent efforts is the highly anticipated drama Gold, and TWC-Dimension announced today that it has slated the film for wide release on Christmas Day of this year, putting it directly into the awards fray.

December 25th falls on a Sunday this year, so Gold will be hitting theaters just over a week after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and a few days after Assassin’s Creed, the animated Sing, and the Chris Pratt/Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi romance Passengers.
