Pics pick up audience kudos at festival

The Weinstein Co.’s “The Artist” and HBO Documentary Films’ local-themed doc “Hard Times: Lost on Long Island” picked up audience kudos at the Hamptons Film Festival Sunday night.

Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon’s comic romance “The Fairy” scored the fest’s jury-selected Golden Starfish prize for narrative feature, with Fellipe Barbosa’s doc “Laura,” about a Brazilian ex-pat in Gotham, taking the Starfish for docu.

Mark Jackson’s debut feature “Without,” about a woman who takes a temporary gig as an old man’s caretaker, scored two prizes, the Kodak Award for cinematography and the Wouter Barendrecht Pioneering Vision award.

Special prizes went to Joshua Marston’s Albania-set drama “The Forgiveness of Blood” and real estate development docu “You’ve Been Trumped,” which snagged the fest’s kudo for social justice. Prize for short films went to documentary short “Two’s a Crowd” and doc “The Strange Ones.”

Previously announced awards handed out at the 19th annual fest went to Annie Howell and Lisa Robinson’s “Small, Beautifully Moving Parts,” which took the Sloan Foundation prize, and Lee Hirsch’s doc “The Bully Project,” scoring the kudo for films about conflict and resolution.

Fest finished its five-day run Monday.
