Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Roberts and Evan Rachel Wood will be honorees at the 2014 Maui Film Festival, it was announced today by Barry Rivers, Director of the event.

“For an event that’s often been referred to as a ‘jewel box’ film festival, this year’s intelligent, talented and beautiful (both inside and out) list of luminaries seamlessly fit into the tapestry of ‘diamonds, rubies and pearls’ we have honored since our inception in 2000,” said Rivers. “To say the least, we’re thrilled beyond words.”
