The fundraiser takes place at the newly opened Academy Museum in Los Angeles 6th of October. Jane Fonda and Zazie Beetz will be honored Wednesday during Women in Filmäs WTF Honors gala while Jenny Yang has also joined the program to host.
Fonda will be on hand as the organization debuts the Jane Fonda Humanitarian Award, named for its inaugural recipient and for decades of activism and philanthropic work. Beetz will be feted with WTF’s Max Mara Face of the Future Award. She broke out in the FX series Atlanta and has since turned in performances in Joker, Seberg, Deadpool 2 and the upcoming The harder They Fell and Bullet Train.
The trio join a lineup of honorees that includes Coda star Marlee Matlin with filmmaker Siân Heder; Hacks duo Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder; and Euphoria Emmy winner Zendaya with producer and frequent collaborator Ashley Levinson.
