‘Q.T.’ to start Greenwich fest

Oscar winner Neil feted with lifetime achievement nod

The inaugural Greenwich Film Festival kicks off this week with Yale Strom’s “On the Q.T.,” starring James Earl Jones and Trudie Styler.

Event, which runs Thursday-Saturday on three screens in the Connecticut enclave, will present nine feature films in addition to a series of filmmaking workshops.

Veteran producer Martin Poll (“The Lion in Winter,” “The Fugitive Kind”) has been selected by fest founder John Carley to chair the jury. Actress Patricia Neil, who in 1963 won an Oscar for her performance in “Hud,” will be presented with a lifetime achievement award on opening night by fellow thesp Glenn Close.

Program highlights include Tim McAnn’s “Revolution No. 9,” starring Adrienne Shelley and Spaulding Grey, and helmer Brian Averill’s “Ghetto Dawg,” which recently picked up best film honors at the Atlantic City film festival.
