Gregory Peck award for Dingle
The second Dingle Film Festival, which runs from September 11th to 14th, will inaugurate the Gregory Peck Award for Excellence in the Arts of Film.
“My father’s grandmother came from Dingle and any time he visited there, he always had a sense of coming home,” says his daughter Cecilia Peck, who co-directed the Dixie Chicks documentary Shut Up and Sing. She will attend the festival to introduce a special screening of To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), featuring her father in one of his most celebrated performances. The festival will close with Barbara Kopple’s documentary, A Conversation with Gregory Peck. www.dinglefilmfestival.com
