A local film festival plans to literally roll out the red carpet to welcome an actor from a well-known television series in November.

Seth Peterson, better known to some as Nate Westen, the way-ward little brother to super-spy Michael Westen from the USA network's hit show "Burn Notice," is scheduled to attend the Daytona Beach Film Festival's opening night screening of his quirky indie film Sedona.

Mr. Peterson also is well known from his starring role in all four seasons of NBC's Emmy Award-winning series "Providence." The actor, who is no stranger to Florida after filming six seasons with Miami-based "Burn Notice," is nominated for the Daytona Beach Film Festival's Indie Spirit Award, in recognition of his work on independent films while also balancing his career in network television.

This is a landmark year for the Daytona Beach Film Festival, celebrating its 10th anniversary. The event will showcase films from a variety of genres at the Cinematique Theater of Daytona and a second screen of films at the City Island Ballroom.

The festival opens on Friday, Nov. 9, when guests will have the chance to meet Mr. Peterson at the Opening Night Gala, which includes dinner, the screening of "Sedona," Q&A with Peterson, dessert, live music and dancing.

A variety of additional activities will also round out the weekend. Saturday Nov. 10 will include a Riverfront Market, with live music, food and unique gifts from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday evening will feature a free showing of "Hugo" - sponsored by the Daytona Beach Downtown Development Authority - at 6 p.m. on a giant outdoor screen. And Sunday, Nov. 11, will bring a Food Truck Bazaar, with a picnic and live music in the park from 1 to 6 p.m.

Cinematique is at 242 S. Beach St. The theater is part of the Riverfront Shops of Daytona Beach - the new name for the historic Beach Street retail area between Bay Street and Orange Avenue.

Visit DBFF.org for further information on the film festival, or contact the Cinematique box office at (386) 252-3118. Tickets are on sale now.
