OPENING NIGHT: Working Title Films’ ABOUT TIME
This year, the Festival is honoring Working Title Films, and co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, with the Golden Starfish Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Based on an article in The New Yorker by best-selling writer Jonathan Franzen, Emptying the Skies chronicles the poaching of migratory birds in southern Europe and introduces us to the intrepid volunteer squad of bird-lovers trying to stop it. Director Douglas Kass and co-director Roger Kass skillfully translate the spirit of Franzen’s words onto the screen and deservedly win this year’s Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award.
