Joan Collins Wins Top Acting Award at the New York City International Film Festival

Joan Collins has won the best actress award at the New York City International Film Festival for her stellar performance as an aging sex symbol in the dark, weird comedy "Fetish," a LMDQ LLC production. Collins made television history playing the sultry, conniving vixen, Alexis Carrington Colby, on the legendary night-time soap opera "Dynasty." 
In her new short movie, directed by Matthew Pellowski, Collins--who has demonstrated that she can chew the scenery in campy roles--shows off her genuine acting chops.  In "Fetish," Collins offers a delicate balance of loopy comedy and tragic fragility.  The film received a standing ovation at the Manhattan screening last Monday night at New World Stages Theater in Times Square, with an audience that included columnist Liz Smith, who commented on Collins, "Her beauty and her flamboyant style have sometimes obscured just how nuanced a performer she is.  Those nuances are apparent in 'Fetish' where she conveys a surprising vulnerability." more.
