Bieber to pick up Tribeca gong

Justin Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun are set to be honoured at the Tribeca Film Festival for their contributions "in the worlds of business, technology, arts, entertainment and beyond".

The Baby pop star and Scooter - who is frequently seen in Justin's biopic Never Say Never - have been recognised by the Disruptive Innovation Awards, "for the historic discovery of Bieber on YouTube and his subsequent social media rise".

The ceremony will be held in New York on April 27 as part of this year's Tribeca. Also scheduled for the April 18 to April 29 event - founded as a response to the September 11 terror attacks - are Freida Pinto's new movie Trishna, Julie Delpy's 2 Days In New York and Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz.

Joss Whedon's superhero bonanza The Avengers will close the festival.
