Nantucket festival wraps

Event honored filmmakers new and old

The 13th Annual Nantucket Film Festival, which wrapped Sunday, honored screenwriters and filmmakers both established and green.

The four-day fest saw more than 50 features and shorts screen on the island, a laid-back interval just before the onslaught of summer tourist season.

Judd Apatow, Meg Ryan and Nanette Burstein received tributes. At Sunday’s awards, the Showtime-sponsored Tony Cox Screenplay Competition winner was FM Strype for “Anna Down East.” The Tony Cox Award for Screenwriting went to Daniel Schechter for “Goodbye Baby.”

Jody Lambert won the audience award for his feature “Of All The Things.”

Apatow was given the NBC Universal Suzanne and Bob Wright Screenwriting Award, and Ryan’s career was highlighted during the Compass Rose Acting Tribute.

“American Teen” helmer Nanette Burstein was awarded the second annual Adrienne Shelley Excellence in Fimmaking Award, a cash prize in memory of the late “Waitress” director.

Sony Pictures Classics’ “The Wackness” closed the fest Sunday, one of several pics with distribution using the Nantucket berth to plug an upcoming theatrical bow.
