Nantucket Card

The full programming lineup will be announced on May 16th, but here's a little tease about this year's edition of one of my favorite early summer fests, which runs from June 16-20. The NBC screenwriting tribute honoree this year is Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Human Nature, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation). Past honorees include Ring Lardner, Jr. (M*A*S*H, The Cincinnati Kid, Woman of the Year), Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and James Schamus (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Ride With the Devil, The Ice Storm) and the evening is a fantastic evening hosted by newsman Brian Williams who never fails to leave the audience in stitches. Celebs expected at the fest include Alan Cumming, Rosie Perez, Stone Philips and The Queer Eye Guys.

The festival's brand-spanking new website has just launched and it is a dandy! Very nicely designed and cool-looking as all heck! It's designed by the folks at Last Exit.
