Sidney Lumet, Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson were presented with Artists for Amnesty Awards at the opening-night ceremonies of the fourth annual Amnesty International Film Festival, which kicked off its six-day run Tuesday at the DGA in Los Angeles. Strip Search -- which Lumet directed, Fontana wrote and Levinson executive produced -- inaugurated a program of 27 human-rights documentaries, shorts and feature films from 18 countries. Glenn Close and Maggie Gyllenhaal star in Strip Search, which had a one-time airing on HBO a year ago. The Amnesty festival, co-presented by the city of West Hollywood, also screens annually in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh and Asheville, N.C., and is starting an annual unspooling in Washington in the fall in association with National Geographic.
