Guare garners IFP award

Playwright John Guare will be honored Sept. 28 at the Independent Feature Project’s Gotham Awards. Guare, whose plays include “The House of Blue Leaves” and “Six Degrees of Separation,” has made a number of screenwriting forays including “Atlantic City” and the forthcoming film of “Six Degrees.”

Guare joins the roster of 1993 award winners, which includes producer David Brown, production designer Patrizia Von Brandenstein and filmmaker Martin Scorsese. The latter will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award concurrent with the release of his new film “Age of Innocence.”

The third annual event occurs simultaneously with the organization’s annual Independent Feature Film Market. Now in its 15th year, the IFFM will run Sept. 27-Oct. 4 at Manhattan’s fourplex Angelika Film Center.

Among the submissions already slotted are first films by producer Monty Ross and actor Steve Buscemi. Ross, who works with Spike Lee, will be present with “The Dog Is Barking” while Buscemi’s debut is titled “What Happened to Pete.”
