LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

Thanks to aohora for the heads up.

If anyone here is going, we would love to feature and news/reports/photos from the event.

“The brilliance of LOST has forever raised the bar for future television projects. For the past five years LOST has kept TV viewers on the edge of their seats waiting for the next plot twist or turn and Hawaii has had the privilege of being the backdrop for this revolutionary show,” said Chuck Boller, Executive Director of HIFF. “We want to celebrate this partnership and what better way than to bring the show’s creators, producers, cast and crew together with their biggest fans. HIFF’s celebration of LOST will give the public a once-in-a-lifetime chance to interface with the incredible people behind this award-winning series.”

This all-day event truly benefits Hawaii, since the show is filmed entirely on the island of Oahu. In the evening, fans will have the opportunity to pick the brains of the show’s creative masterminds, discuss the last 5 1/2 years of the show with special guest appearances from cast and crew members and perhaps find out a bit about the upcoming final season. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will receive the Hawaii International Film Festival’s “Vision in Film Award,” presented by Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann. The City and County of Honolulu sponsors the “Vision in Film Award” at HIFF. Previous recipients of the Vision in Film Award include famed Chinese directors Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou.

HIFF will also honor Hawaii-based executive producer and director Jack Bender and co-executive producer Jean Higgins with the Hawaii International Film Festival’s inaugural Mahalo Nui Loa Award, created especially for Bender and Higgins.

HIFF presents an exclusive appearance by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, the creative team behind LOST, as part of an evening event on October 17th, 2009 at the Royal Hawaiian Theater (formerly Waikiki Nei) from 8:00pm to 9:30pm. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Brian Lowry, Chief TV Critic for VARIETY and co-host of the popular weekly TV program “Square Off,” will act as MC for the event.
