‘Silver Linings’ wins Hamptons narrative award

'No Place on Earth' takes audience award for documentary

“Silver Linings Playbook” and “No Place on Earth” won the audience awards for narrative and docu film, respectively, at the Hamptons Film Festival on Sunday night. Tying for the narrative award from the Golden Starfish jury were Umat Dag’s “Kuma” and Cate Shortland’s “Lore,” while the Golden Starfish for docu went to “Columbianos,” directed by Tora Martens.

David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” also won the Toronto Film Fest audience award, which like the Hamptons prize, has recently become an early awards season indicator. Docu “No Place on Earth” tells the story of a Jewish family who hid in a cave in the Ukraine for 511 days during the Holocaust.

Narrative cinematography prize went to “Lore,” while Carlos Vallarino was awarded a special jury prize for his performance in “La Demora.”

“Jason Becker Is Not Dead” won a special jury prize for inspiration, and the Golden Starfish for best short went to “The Curse,” directed by Fyzal Boulifa.

Also during the 20th fest, Variety presented the annual 10 actors to watch list, while Ian Birnie received a Golden Starfish for curatorial excellence.
