NEW YORK — Good Machine co-founders Ted Hope and James Schamus will receive the Filmmaker on the Edge Award at the third annual Provincetown Intl. Film Festival, running June 13-17 at the tip of Cape Cod.
Award presentation will accompany a panel discussion featuring the two previous years’ Edge Award recipients, Christine Vachon and John Waters, to be moderated by New York Times film critic Stephen Holden.
Among Hope and Schamus’ joint producing credits are Todd Solondz’s “Happiness,” Todd Haynes’ “Safe” and Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” “The Ice Storm” and “Ride With the Devil,” the latter three of which Schamus had a hand in scripting.
Fest also will feature the East Coast premiere of Tom Tykwer’s “The Princess and the Warrior,” starring Franka Potente, as well as special screenings of John Cameron Mitchell’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cummings’ “The Anniversary Party” and a tribute to Albert and David Maysles. Among those expected to attend are Tykwer, Potente, Cumming and Albert Maysles, who’ll be on hand to introduce screenings of “Grey Gardens,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Meet Marlon Brando” and “With Love From Truman.”
The Sundance Channel is the main sponsor of the fest, which is produced by Connie White and P.J. Layng.
