Bruce Dern to visit Port Townsend Film Festival

One of the area’s most delightful film festivals has announced its special guest for this year: Bruce Dern, an Oscar nominee for “Coming Home” and a character actor who’s made a specialty of playing villains and oddballs (such as his deranged Frank in HBO’s “Big Love”), will attend the festival and be honored with a tribute evening. The PTFF has not yet announced which of his films will screen; my guess is “Coming Home” or “Black Sunday,” but we shall see. He’ll be interviewed onstage and will answer audience questions during the tribute.
The PTFF, now in its 13th year, takes place September 21-23 at several historic cinemas in Port Townsend, and always presents an intriguing mix of films old and new. (Last year, I had the great pleasure of introducing “The Thin Man” — in 35mm! — at the festival, to an audience that thoroughly enjoyed it.) The lineup won’t be announced until August, but you can get more information on the festival in the meantime here: www.ptfilmfest.com. It always makes for a fun, film-filled weekend away.
