The Maui Film Festival will be held June 12-16 at the Wailea Resort.
Barry Rivers, the director of the event, announced this week that Golden Globe Award winner Jessica Chastain will be the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award recipient.
The Maui Film Festival Nova Award honors a film artist “for their astonishingly original and seamless performances, and the way they consistently infuse the characters they embody with insight, humanity and wisdom.”
Few film artists are as talented and versatile as Jessica Chastain. She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is one-of-a-kind and we couldn’t be more pleased to honor her with the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award.
The award will be presented at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.
