Spike Lee film screens December 11
Spike Lee’s “Miracle at St. Anna” will close the fifth edition of the Bahamas Film Festival in Nassau on Dec. 11.
Films screening at this year’s event include Ryan Fleck’s “Sugar”; Aaron Woodley’s “Tennessee,” starring Mariah Carey; and helmer Austin Chick’s “August,” starring Josh Hartnett, Adam Scott and Robin Tunney.
Opener “Rain,” an indie pic from Bahamian filmmaker Maria Govan, was developed through the fest’s Filmmaker Residency Program in 2005.
Sean Connery will hand Laurence Fishburne the career achievement nod, and thesp Anna Faris will be feted with the rising star tribute.
The fest runs Dec. 4-11.
