Film wins best dramatic feature, best director

“(500) Days of Summer” nabbed top honors Sunday at the Maui Film Festival including audience awards for dramatic feature and director, Marc Webb.

Comedy feature prize went to another unconventional love story, docu-like, Michael Cera starrer “Paper Heart.”

“The Cove,” about a team of filmmakers out to expose the Japanese fish market and its treatment of dolphins, topped the best feature docu category, while Osar-winning “Departures” nabbed the world cinema prize.

Fest ran June 17-21, after which kudos were voted on by some 20,000 attendees.
