Film Fest to Honor Riz Ahmed
May 19, 2021 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) announced last week that its 2021 Excellence in Acting Award will go to Riz Ahmed, recently Oscar-nominated for his role in Sound of Metal. Ahmed will appear in a virtual conversation during the “hybrid” festival, which will be screening live at the Waters Edge Cinema and virtually from June 16th to 25th. Passes are available at provincetownfilm.org.
The British-Pakistani actor will also be represented at the festival by the film Mogul Mowgli, which he co-wrote, produced, and stars in. It’s the semi-autobiographical story of a British-Pakistani rapper who, when brought down by a serious illness, is forced to reckon with his past and his family.
Also announced: a virtual talk with TV show-runner Joey Soloway (Transparent) and filmmaker Doane Tulugaq Avery, as well as a live event at the Truro Vineyards with producer Christine Vachon and writer-director Daniel Minahan, collaborators on the 1996 film I Shot Andy Warhol and on the new Netflix series Halston. Novelist Wally Lamb will be the speaker at this year’s Evan Lawson Brunch, live at Bubala’s by the Bay.
