The Nantucket Film Festival brought stars to the island all weekend, from Glenn Close, who was there to present “Silver Linings Playbook” writer-director David O. Russell with the 2013 Screenwriters Tribute Award, to director-writer-actress Lake Bell, whose movie “In a World . . .” earned her Nantucket’s New Voices in Screenwriting prize. Bell, whose movie follows a woman trying to make it in the predominately male voiceover business, hung out during the weekend festivities with “Girls” star Allison Williams. Close, meanwhile, mingled at the Dreamland Theatre with winner of Nantucket’s 2013 Special Achievement in Documentary Storytelling Award, Barbara Kopple, whose latest project, “Running From Crazy,” is about Mariel Hemingway and her family’s history of mental illness. Other familiar faces at the festival included “Saturday Night Live” star Seth Meyers, who will soon take over “Late Night” for Jimmy Fallon; “Hardball” host Chris Matthews; James Ponsoldt, director of “The Spectacular Now,” which stars Shailene Woodley; and Nantucket Film Festival director Mystelle Brabbee, NPR’s “Ask Me Another” host Ophira Eisenberg, and Moth storyteller Ed Gavagan, who gathered for the Late Night Storytelling event at the Sconset Casino.
