Aug. 29 (UPI) — Michelle Yeoh will be honored at the TIFF Tribute Awards in September.

TIFF said in a press release Monday that Yeoh will receive the inaugural TIFF Share Her Journey Groundbreaker Award at the awards ceremony.

The TIFF Tribute Awards will take place Sept. 11 at Fairmount Royal York Hotel in Toronto during the 47th annual Toronto International Film Awards.

This year she delivered a performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once that shows her limitless abilities. We’re so proud to honor her with the Share Her Journey Groundbreaker Award.”

The TIFF Share Her Journey Groundbreaker Award recognizes a woman who is a leader in the film industry and has made a positive impact for women throughout their career.
