‘Perfect’ opens Provincetown

Maysles to receive lifetime honor

The 2011 Provincetown Intl. Film Festival has nailed down its sked, opening with Kathleen Turner topliner “The Perfect Family” and closing with the recent screen version of “Master Harold and the Boys” starring Ving Rhames and Freddie Highmore.

Fest’s career achievement kudo will go to documentarian Albert Maysles, whose credits include “Grey Gardens” and “Gimme Shelter.”

The 50 pics include festcircuit regulars “Another Earth,” “Happy, Happy,” “Becoming Chaz” and “Page One: Inside the New York Times,” as well as the Weinstein Co.’s recent Tribeca pickup “The Bully Project.”

Award recipients also will include the previously announced Darren Aronofky, taking the annual Filmmaker on the Edge kudo, and an acting trophy for Vera Farmiga (also set to be honored by the Nantucket fest this summer).

“Perfect Family” preemed earlier this year at Tribeca. PIFF’s spotlight pics are Tehran-set lesbian romance “Circumstance” and Papua New Guinea surfing docu “Splinters.” Fest runs June 15-19 in Provincetown, Mass.
