Stars attend HollyShorts Festival

Event honors Paul Haggis, David Lynch

HOLLYWOOD — Josh Brolin and Jessica Biel were among the stars hoping to prove that good things do come in small packages at the fourth annual HollyShorts Film Festival, which honors shorts from around the world.

Biel was on hand Thursday for the Egyptian Theater opening night gala to talk up “Hole in the Sky,” which she produced and stars in, while Brolin discussed the motivation for directing “X,” starring his daughter Eden.

“To me the whole reason you do a short is to understand your strengths and weaknesses. It’s about the storytelling,” Brolin said.

Paul Haggis, who was honored along with David Lynch, said he admires the passion of his fellow filmmakers. “It all starts with someone’s vision. What I miss most in cinema is passion.”
