Academy, Nantucket Fest Team for Young Filmmaker Outreach

'Inocente' duo to address young filmmakers; Glenn Close to present award to David O. Russell

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will partner with the Nantucket Film Festival as part of the fest’s 2013 edition, which also will see Glenn Close and David O. Russell participating in festival events this June.

As part of its visiting artist program, the Academy will bring this year’s doc short Oscar winners, Andrea Nix Fine and Sean Fine, to NFF for an outreach program for young filmmakers drawn from the Cine Institute of Haiti and Nantucket’s Teen Filmmaking program. The Fines will present their Oscar winning short “Inocente” and participate in a roundtable discussion with the programs’ student filmmakers. Students also will present their projects from the past year and participate in a discussion event moderated by Ben Stiller, a frequent presence at NFF.

The Fines’ feature doc “Life According to Sam,” which bowed at Sundance earlier this year, also will screen as part of this year’s fest.

Meanwhile, Close has been tapped to present the fest’s annual Screenwriting Tribute Award to David O. Russell, the writer-helmer also just added to the lineup of the fest’s “In Their Shoes” interview series moderated every year by Chris Matthews. Mariel Hemingway and doc helmer Barbara Kopple also will participate in the program this year.

The 18th annual Nantucket Film Festival runs June 26-30.
