'Volver' wins fest's Hollywood World Award

Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center,” Pedro Almodovar’s “Volver” and Terry Green’s “Heavens Fall” received the top awards at the 10th anniversary edition of the Hollywood Film Festival.

“WTC” drew the movie of the year nod, chosen by online voting, over “Cars,” “The Da Vinci Code,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Mission: Impossible III,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” “Superman Returns,” “United 93” and “X-Men: The Last Stand.”

“Volver” was selected for the fest’s Hollywood World Award, and “Heavens Fall,” based on the 1933 Scottsboro Boys retrial, took the feature nod at the Hollywood Discovery Awards.

Other kudos went to Philippe Diaz’s “The Empire in Africa,” which drew docu honors; “American Dreams,” by Eelko Ferwerda of Holland, short subject; “Haptics,” by Mayur Deshpande of India, animated short subject; and “Smatka: Wrong Love,” by Gero von Braunmuehl of Germany, musicvideo.

The festival drew more than 25,000 attendees, including 1,200 for Monday night’s awards ceremonies.
