Accolades for fests and filmmakers

It’s awards season, and that doesn’t just apply to the major studios feverishly unleashing their best in the race for year-end recognition and Oscar nominations. Several local filmmakers and festivals also reaped accolades in November. Dover, N.H., resident Alfred Thomas Catalfo took the grand prize in the 2012 Rhode Island International Film Festival Screenplay Competition with his feature script, “Betrayed.” Catalfo’s entry was judged the best among 367 submissions — the most in the competition’s history — from throughout the United States and across the globe, according to festival executive director George T. Marshall, who announced the award.

Catalfo, who has written and directed several short films, will be honored at the opening night gala of the festival next August.
