JUNE-JULY2015 This year the Nantucket Film Festival will celebrate its 20th Anniversary. To commemorate the event several additions have been added, one of the most important being a special award to be presented at the ever famous Screenwriters Tribute. The Variety Creative Impact in Television Writing Award will be bestowed on Beau Willimon. The Screen Writer, playwright and producer is the creator of the original Netflix series House of Cards and serves as its showrunner and executive producer. House of Cards made television history in its first season when it earned nine Emmy® nominations, including one for Outstanding Drama Series, becoming the first online streaming show ever to receive substantial Emmy recognition. Since then, the show has garnered multiple nominations for Emmy, Golden Globe, Producers Guild of America, SAG-AFTRA, and Writers Guild of America awards, and it has won in many categories. Robin Wright (PRINCESS BRIDE, House of Cards) will present Beau Willimon with Variety’s Creative Impact in Television Writing Award at the Screenwriters Tribute at 6:30pm on June 27th at the ‘Sconset Casino. Wright and Willimon will also participate in an “In Their Shoes...” with Chris Matthews on Sunday, June 28 at 10 am at the Nantucket High School.
