Ben was joined at the festival’s Filmmakers Party on Day 2 by Mariska Hargitay, Bobby Cannavale and Mike Birbiglia, where they all helped honor Tom McCarthy.

“Tom McCarthy for me epitomizes the kind of smart and emotional character-oriented storyteller that movie industry needs today,” Ben said (via IndieWire). “I think it’s important — in this day of huge, effects-driven franchises — to support and celebrate human stories that don’t center on aliens or robots.”
