Smith, Swinton pick up awards at Provincetown

Smith gets fest's Filmmaker on the Edge honor

Kevin Smith, Tilda Swinton and helming duo Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will receive awards this summer at the Province-town Film Fest.

Smith will take home the 2010 Filmmaker on the Edge Award, which honors a boundary-pushing body of work. Prior recipients of the nod, handed out annually since the fest was founded in 1999, include John Waters and Guy Maddin, last year’s honoree.

Swinton (“Michael Clayton”) gets the festival’s kudo for excellence in acting while Epstein and Friedman will be given the Faith Hubley Memorial Award. The pair helmed, wrote and produced pics including “Common Threads: Stories From the Quilt,” “The Celluloid Closet” and the upcoming “Howl.”

Fest runs June 16-20 in Provincetown, Mass.
