Hello fellow Evangeline fans! Kudos to the wonderful Sharon, we’ve found a brand new photo of Evangeline, meeting up with Rick Kinsel from The Vilcek Foundation and a woman names Jess Cole during the Hawaii Internation Film Festival. (You can read more about the foundation and festival below). Long time fans of Evi might remember that the foundation gave an exclusive profile on her back in 2010, which can be viewed on their official facebook here. What Evangeline was doing at HIFF is currently unknown, but we will update you as soon as we come across something relevant! A photo from the meeting has been added to our galleries, and we hope to come across more soon. Stay tuned!
The Vilcek Foundation aims to raise public awareness of the contributions of immigrants to the sciences, the arts and culture in the United States. The Foundation was established in 2000 by Jan and Marica Vilcek, immigrants from the former Czechoslovakia. The mission of the Foundation was inspired by the couple’s respective careers in biomedical science and art history, as well as their personal experiences and appreciation for the opportunities offered them as newcomers to the United States.
Since 2007, in recognition of the many talented foreign-born directors, producers, actors, and writers now practicing their craft in this country, the Vilcek Foundation has been sponsoring the New American Filmmakers (NAF) program, in partnership with the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF).
We are proud to announce the 2012 entries to be screened at the 32nd annual Hawaii International Film Festival in Honolulu?“Cinema in Paradise”?held this year from October 11th to the 21st. (Click here for the list)
