It’s nearly time again for the Nantucket Film Festival, one of our island’s defining annual cultural events, and you’ll have convenient and luxurious lodgings for the affair with a room at Greydon House! The festival action’s underway from Wednesday, June 19th through Monday, June 24th, so now’s the time to book your accommodations here.
The 2019 Nantucket Film Festival
It’s the 24th edition of the Nantucket Film Festival, which draws thousands of attendees and features a wide array of films sourced from all around the world as well as a rich feast of panels, storytelling sessions, casual conversations, awards, and other enticements. It takes place across several venues, including the Dreamland Film & Cultural Center and the ‘Sconset Casino.
The schedule for this year’s festival is as jampacked and richly stocked as ever, but we’ll draw out a few highlights just to convey the breadth and caliber of this highly regarded cinematic celebration. Among the feature films being screened are Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, which stars Awkwafina in a story about a family get-together in China, and Michael Tysborski’s The Sound of Silence, which stars Peter Sarsgaard and Rashida Jones.
The diverse lineup of documentaries include profiles of musician David Crosby (Remember My Name) and author Toni Morrison (The Pieces I Am).
The iconic sketch series Saturday Night Live will be well represented during this year’s Nantucket Film Festival. Its annual Comedy Roundtable on Saturday will focus on SNL sketches that never made it to air for one reason or another (“SNL Writers’ Room Gold”), while the Creative Impact in Television honors—also on Saturday—will put the spotlight on four seminal women of SNL: Anne Beatts, Jane Curtin, Sarah Schneider, and Suli Green.
Leslie Dixon will be the 2019 recipient of the Nantucket Film Festival’s Screenwriters Tribute Award. Dixon has written such memorable films as Mrs. Doubtfire, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Freaky Friday.
