The “This Is 40″ director will receive the Visionary Filmmaker award during an Oct. 3, 2013 tribute.

Director Judd Apatow will be honored with the Visionary Filmmaker award during the San Diego Film Festival in October, the SD Film Foundation said Thursday.

“Judd Apatow is indisputably one of the most supremely talented and beloved contemporary filmmakers working today,” said festival directors Tonya Mantooth and Dale Strack in a statement. “His body of work transcends a typical moviegoing experience and enters the zeitgeist in a way rarely seen. On behalf of San Diego, we are beyond thrilled to honor him with a much-deserved award.”

Apatow has directed, among other comedies, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Funny People. His latest directorial effort, This Is 40, was released in December and was billed as a “sort-of sequel” to Knocked Up. Apatow also served as a producer on Bridesmaids and Pineapple Express.

The gala will be held Oct. 3 at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Last year’s Visionary Filmmaker honoree was Promised Land director Gus Van Sant.
