Newport calls ‘Time’ in

Event unspools June 10-15

Shane Meadows’ “Once Upon a Time in the Midlands” will kick off the sixth annual Newport Intl. Film Festival.

Family drama, about a man who sets out to reclaim a wife he abandoned years ago, stars Robert Carlyle and Rhys Ifans.

Competitive Newport fest unspools June 10-15, with prizes handed out in feature, doc and short film categories.

Program highlights include the East Coast preem of biopic “American Splendor,” “Dummy” with Adrien Brody and Liz Garbus’ doc “Girlhood.”

Special programs include kid-friendly Row Your Boat slate and Portu-Voz section, which pays tribute to the films from Portugal and Brazil. (Newport/Cape Cod is home to a large Portuguese-American community.)

Great Directors: First Feature program will highlight debut efforts of Alexander Payne (“Citizen Ruth”), Ang Lee (“Pushing Hands”), and Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay”) among others. Gotham improv group the Upright Citizen’s Brigade will host a comedy night. Most screenings will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and each morning will begin with a discussion with visiting industryites.

Fest’s opening and closing events will be held in the Astor’s Beachwood mansion.
