Zac Efron To Receive Maui Film Fest Award

Zac Efron will receive the 2010 Maui Film Festival Shinning Star Award, it was announced today by Barry Rivers, Director of the event, which will be held June 16-20, 2010, in Maui. The Shining Star Award honors “a film artist, still in the ascendance of their career–with many magnetic performances both behind and ahead of them–whose very presence on screen guarantees as much light as heat.” Efron will be presented the Shinning Star Award at the Maui Film Festival Opening Night on June 16th, at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.

“We are thrilled to honor Zac Efron with the 2010 Maui Film Festival Shining Star Award, especially on Opening Night at the Celestial Cinema, in the first year of the festival’s second decade,” said Barry Rivers in a statement. “With this year’s mantra ‘Trust the Future,’ considered, Zac, an actor with abundant talent, an extraordinary career behind him and an even more brilliant one ahead of him, is an exemplary shining star.”
