Hamptons Fest to Honor Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner

Renee Zellweger will introduce the pair, to be toasted by Richard Curtis, Edgar Wright and Joe Wright

The Hamptons Intl. Film Festival has tapped Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, co-chairs of U.K. production company Working Title Films, to receive the fest’s annual Golden Starfish Award for lifetime achievement.

The duo receive the kudo for a track record of pics including “Les Miserables,” “Billy Elliot,” “Four Weddings and Funeral,” “Atonement,” “The World’s End” and the upcoming Richard Curtis romantic comedy “About Time.”

Renee Zellweger, who starred in Working Title’s “Bridget Jones’ Diary,” will introduce Bevan and Fellner during the October awards ceremony at the Hamptons fest. Also as part of the event, Curtis, Edgar Wright and Joe Wright will join Zellweger and the two producers in conversation.

The award presentation is a centerpiece event for “Focus on UK Film,” a program that teams HIFF with BAFTA New York for a series of Brit-centric programming that will include Hamptons screenings of “About Time,” Ralph Fiennes’ “The Invisible Woman” and Richard Laxton’s “Burton and Taylor,” starring Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West.

The Hamptons fest runs Oct. 10-14, launching with opener “Kill Your Darlings” and including centerpiece “Nebraska” and closer “12 Years a Slave.” The annual Golden Starfish ceremony is set for Oct. 12, with the tribute to Working Title Films produced by Luke Parker Bowles and Harlene Freezer.
