WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Glenn Close has had plenty of commercial success as an actor, including six Oscar nominations, but it is in independent film where her passion lies.

That passion is being honored next month when she is scheduled to receive the Mid-Life Achievement Award at the 17th annual Maine International Film Festival in Waterville.

Close, who has a home in Maine, tells the Morning Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1m7CIQx) making an independent film takes resilience and creative financing. She says “you have to love it enough to go through all the hoops.”

The Mid-Life Achievement Award is presented to someone who has made significant contributions to the art of cinema. Past honorees include Ed Harris, Malcolm McDowell, and Sissy Spacek.

The 10-day festival is scheduled for July 11 through 20, and features more than 100 films.
