Emmy Rossum, DreamWorks Animation Highlight Carmel International Film Festival

Rossum will receive a breakthrough award at upcoming event for her performance in “You’re Not You”

“Shameless” star Emmy Rossum and DreamWorks Animation will be featured at the 6th Annual Carmel International Film Festival, which runs from Oct. 15-19.

Rossum will receive a special tribute for breakthrough performance for her role in “You’re Not You.” The film finds Hilary Swank starring as a victim of Lou Gehrig’s disease, with Rossum co-starring as an aimless young woman who serves as a personal caregiver. Entertainment One Films US acquired North American distribution rights to the George C. Wolfe drama in April.

The fest also will spotlight DreamWorks Animation in a master class panel discussion and behind-the-scenes look at upcoming home video release “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” The panel will include producer Bonnie Arnold, POV production designer Pierre-Oliver Vincent, supervising sound designer Randy Thom and composer John Powell.

There will be a full slate of feature films and student work that will run throughout the festival.

“We are excited about our film slate this year,” said Thomas Burns, president and co-founder of the festival. “We have many of the contenders expected to do well this awards season. The outstanding documentary lineup is both humorous and heartwrenching, and if our student and shorts films are any indication of the future of film, I’m excited to see what’s coming.”
