Past recipients of the Woodstock Film Festival’s Honorary Maverick Award include Steve Buscemi, Woody Harrelson, Tim Robbins, D.A. Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus, Les Blank, and Mira Nair.

Kopple has won a slew of awards over her thirty year career, including the Human Rights Watch Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award, Los Angeles Film Critics Award, National Society of Film Critics Award, the SilverDocs/Charles Guggenheim Award, New York Women in Film & Television Muse Award, the Maya Deren Independent Film and Video Award, and the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, Filmmakers Trophy & Audience Award. Ms. Kopple currently serves as a board member for the American Film Institute and the American University Center for Social Media, and actively participates in organizations that address social issues and support independent filmmaking.

Meira Blaustein, Woodstock Film Festival executive director and co-founder said, “The Maverick Award was derived from its symbolic meaning to the Woodstock arts colony, representing an individual whose life and work is based on creativity, independent vision, and social activism. Barbara Kopple has made a tremendous contribution to the filmmaking community that she influences, to the audiences who appreciate her work and to the many individuals whose lives are directly touched by her vision.
