With roughly a month to go before its 22nd edition, the Nantucket Film Festival on Monday unveiled more programming for this year's event, set to run June 21-26.

The fest has added screenings of Matt Spicer's Ingrid Goes West, starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen, and the Mariska Hargitay-produced sexual assault doc I Am Evidence, directed by Trish Adlesic and Geeta Gandbhir.

Organizers also announced that Ben Stiller, an NFF board member, will host the screenwriters tribute event honoring Tom McCarthy, Nick Broomfield, Geremy Jasper, David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik.

Additional programs include an "In Their Shoes With…David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik" conversation hosted by NPR's Ophira Eisenberg and a screening of the 1925 silent film The Freshman, accompanied by a live score composed and performed by the Berklee School of Music, at a pre-festival kickoff event on June 20.
