Anna Faris to pick Rising Star Award at Bahamas Fest

The Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) announced today that Anna Faris (“House Bunny” “Scary Movie” series, “Lost in Translation”) will be honored with BIFF’s special Rising Star Tribute, presented by offshore bank and trust company Ansbacher (Bahamas) Limited and Chopard. The announcement was made by BIFF Founder & Executive Director Leslie Vanderpool.

The Festival’s Rising Star Award is given to an actor or actress whose noteworthy performances have put them on the path for elite and lasting stardom in the industry. Anna Faris will be on hand for the special Chopard Award tribute presentation on Monday, December 8th at Aura Nightclub at the Atlantis Hotel on Paradise Island.

Commented Vanderpool, “Anna Faris represents everything that is good about Hollywood’s present and future. Through the diverse roles she has taken on early in her career, she has displayed tremendous creativity and a marvelous gift for acting. With a number of hit films to her credit and legions of fans worldwide, including the Bahamas, she is emerging into a league of her own and we are happy to recognize this through our tribute to Anna at this year’s festival.”

Anna Faris most recently starred in the hit film “The House Bunny,” in the leading role of ‘Shelley Darlington,’ a Playboy Bunny who is kicked out of the mansion and tries to adjust to life on the outside. The project was hatched from an original idea by Faris and she collaborated with the writers of “Legally Blonde” on the script. She serves as a producer on the film alongside Happy Madison Productions for Sony Pictures.

Faris will star next spring opposite Seth Rogen in Warner Bros. “Observe and Report” and the Sony animated film “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” opposite Bill Hader.

Additional upcoming films include Universal’s “Kids in America” opposite Topher Grace,” and the British ensemble comedy, “Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel” with Simon Pegg.

In 2003, Faris co-starred in the Oscar nominated film “Lost in Translation,” alongside Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson for director Sofia Coppola. The critically acclaimed box-office hit earned Faris rave reviews. Faris’ additional feature films include, “Brokeback Mountain” for director Ang Lee, “Smiley Face” for director Gregg Araki, “Mama’s Boy” opposite Jon Heder, “Just Friends,” “Waiting,” “Scary Movie,” “Scary Movie 2,” “Scary Movie 3,” and “Scary Movie 4”. These films represent Dimension Films’ most successful franchise to date.

On television, Faris is well remembered for her recurring role on the final season of “Friends,” playing a surrogate mother to ‘Monica’ and ‘Chandler’s’ adopted baby.
