The 50th anniversary of the Hollywood blacklist will be marked by screenings of Thom Anderson and Noel Burch’s documentary “Red Hollywood” and the New Mexico-made feature by three blacklisted figures, “Salt of the Earth.”

Brazilian director Carlos Diegues will receive the Cineaste Award prior to a screening of his latest, “Tieta do Agreste”; vet actor Lou Gossett Jr. will be given the Maverick Award; and Philip Kaufman will receive the second annual Howard Hawks Storytelling Award at a screening of his “The White Dawn,” which co-starred Gossett.

Native American Alanis Obomsawin will be honored with the Taos Mountain Award in conjunction with a showing of her new film, “Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance.”

Opening night attraction will be Paul Weiland’s “Roseanna’s Grave,” with Jean Reno and Mercedes Ruehl, while the closer will be Cedric Klapisch’s “When the Cat’s Away” from France.
