Scorsese will present the first John Huston Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinema to the "Black Swan" director during the event, which celebrates first-time filmmakers. First Time Fest, which was co-founded by Tony Bennett's daughter, Johanna, and producer Mandy Ward, will screen a dozen films in competition and both the jury and audience will select a Grand Prize winner.

The victor will be offered theatrical distribution and full international sales representation from the American film distributor Cinema Libre Studio. A number of debut movies from filmmakers who went on to prominence, such as John Huston's "The Maltese Falcon," will also be presented at the festival, which will take place March 1-4.

I've been hesitant to spend time watching "The Black Swan" because of the other two films of his that I'm not sure about. In "Pi," Aronovsky has his main character use a more radical solution for his problem rather than take a little more time to seek another path; in "Requiem For A Dream," all the central characters throw what little they have for a day's worth of satisfaction, if that.  The devices Aronofsky uses appear gimmicky, at least to me.
