The 16th Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) will open with the East Coast premiere of Tom Dolby and Tom Williams’ Last Weekend starring Patricia Clarkson on June 18.
Closing the event on June 22 is the North American premiere of Jonathan Demme’s A Master Builder.
The Friday Spotlight will be Sheila Canavan and Michael Chandler’s Compared To What: The Improbable Journey Of Barney Frank and the Saturday Spotlight will be Ira Sachs’ Love Is Strange.
The 2014 Excellence in Acting Award will be awarded to Clarkson, while Debra Winger will receive the Faith Hubley Career Achievement Award.
“We are delighted to honour Patricia Clarkson and Debra Winger at this year’s festival,” said artistic director Connie White. “It is perfect timing to honour Patti, as we can celebrate her remarkable talent and also spotlight her beautiful performance in Last Weekend as our Opening Night Selection.
“In choosing Debra, we get to highlight one of our favorite actresses and a career shaped by thoughtful and intelligent artistic choices, a hallmark of the annual Faith Hubley tribute.”
