Gre­gory Peck award for Din­gle

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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
