‘Spike is an innovator on so many levels. His bold and passionate storytelling over the past three decades has masterfully entertained, as it held a stark mirror to our society and culture. And while he is no stranger to huge commercial success, he is also the beating heart of independent film,’ Glatter said of the legendary film director, 64. 

She concluded: ‘Even as countless filmmakers call Spike their mentor and inspiration, he continues to devote his time to teaching future generations how to make their mark. We are thrilled to present Spike with the DGA’s highest honor.’

Back in 2020, he took home the DGA Honor for his distinguished contributions to our nation’s culture in support of filmmaking.
