The 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival announced today that DANIEL HENNEY, star of the Closing Night film SHANGHAI CALLING, has won the Festival’s OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT ACTING AWARD for his work on the film. The award was given by the Festival’s selection committee, who reviewed more than 2,000 films submitted for competition this year.
“I just want to say that I’m so humbled to receive this award,” said Henney. “Thank you so much to the wonderful cast and crew of SHANGHAI CALLING, to Daniel Hsia for his incredible energy and direction, and to Janet Yang for having faith in me. Let’s hope this is the first of many to come for this amazing little film!”
SHANGHAI CALLING will open the Los Angeles Pacific Film Festival on May 10 at the Director’s Guild of America and will soon announce additional festival dates around the world.Tags: acting, award, daniel henney, festival, nbff, newport beach
