Cannes on Connecticut’s Gold Coast

Move over, Cannes Film Festival. The fourth annual Greenwich International Film Festival is set for May 31 through June 3. The mix of long- and short-form features and documentaries – almost half of which were written or directed by women – opens with “The Price of Everything,” a documentary about art and money by Academy Award nominee Nathaniel Kahn (“My Architect”). There will be a special Town Hall panel Q&A with Kahn and producer Jennifer Stockman.

Other highlights of the festival weekend include:

  • The Changemaker Award Gala May 31, honoring Ashley Judd for her work with the United Nations Population Fund and Community Changemaker Duncan Edwards for his work in education with the Waterside School in Stamford;
  • A performance by Lauryn Hill at the opening night party on June 1 at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich.
  • The Social Impact Awards with a jury chaired by actor Ryan Eggold;
  • And spotlights on actor-director-philanthropist Tony Goldwyn (June 2) and director James Ivory (June 3).
