David O. Russell The New York Times

Given that David O. Russell's "American Hustle" (December 13) is one of the final films to arrive into the already-crowded awards fray, the last film festival of the fall season, AFI FEST 2013 (November 7-14), gets to promote the presumed Oscar contender via Special Tribute on Friday, November 8. (The advance buzz on the movie, which Russell is tinkering with, per usual, is strong.) 

The tribute will look over Russell's body of work, from 1994's breakthrough Sundance entry "Spanking the Monkey" and comedies "Flirting with Disaster" and "I Heart Huckabees" to Kuwait war drama "Three Kings" and "The Fighter" and "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Oscar-winners Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence, respectively. They also star in "American Hustle," which will be screened in part but not in its entirety during the evening.
