We know that film festival attendees appreciate sponsors as supporters of their positive festival experiences. Sponsors of Signature Programs cultivate goodwill and build positive consumer impressions. High-profile guests and luminary hosts both contribute to favorable associations. Below are opportunities currently available at the Producing Sponsor level. NFF SCREENWRITER’S TRIBUTE The NFF Screenwriters Tribute is a celebration of a noted screenwriter who has brought distinction to the craft of writing for film. This red carpet event is hosted by Brian Williams, NFF Board member and NBC News anchor, who shows off his flair for humor. Past honorees include: Judd Apatow, Walter Bernstein, Charlie Kaufman, Ring Lardner Jr., Steve Martin, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Jay Presson Allen, James Schamus, Paul Schrader, Alexander Payne, and Jim Taylor. Last year our audience delighted in meeting and honoring Harold Ramis, the “father of modern day comedy” — Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, etc. BEN STILLER’S ALL STAR COMEDY ROUNDTABLE The Nantucket High School Auditorium, was standing room only for the All-Star Comedy Roundtable. Ben Stiller, John Hamburg, Peter Farrelly and Harold Ramis treated the audience to hilarious insights into how many of their movies were shaped. The afternoon was moderated with great aplomb by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. Board Member Ben Stiller conceived of the idea and has pledged his continued support of this wildly popular, family-friendly event. THE COMPASS ROSE ACTING AWARD This award was introduced at the 2008 festival to recognize the importance of those exceptional actors whose careers have touched both audiences and filmmakers alike, and have in fact inspired writers and directors to create roles specifically for them. The iconic and beloved Meg Ryan was the inaugural recipient of the Compass Rose Acting Award. Meg’s presence on Nantucket last year was a highlight for many festival-goers. And a significant media event! IN THEIR SHOES In Their Shoes is a series of intimate conversations facilitated by a highly regarded host and featuring on separated days both our Screenwriters Tributee and Compass Rose Acting Award recipient. Hollywood luminaries who have received these distinctions in the past include Judd Apatow, Meg Ryan, Steve Martin, Paul Schrader and Charlie Kaufman to name but a few.
