'God Spoke' to kick off fest

Two docus will bookend the five-day Nantucket Film Festival, which begins June 14.

“Al Franken: God Spoke” will kick off the proceedings. Pic, helmed by Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus, tells the story of the liberal commentator’s feud with Bill O’Reilly, as well as Franken’s outspoken campaign against George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election.

Closing the fest will be Ward Serrill’s “The Heart of the Game,” which follows the fortunes of a female high school basketball player whose dream to become the first member of her family in college becomes threatened by off-court strife.

“Sideways” scribes Jim Taylor and Alexander Payne will be feted as NBC Universal screenwriter honorees.
