Jessica Chastain - Jessica Chastain Added To Maui Film Festival Bill

Actress Jessica Chastain has been added to the celebrity honourees at this year's (13) Maui Film Festival in Hawaii.

Kirsten Dunst and Brie Larson have already been announced as recepients of two of the event's top awards, and now the Zero Dark Thirty star is also joining the line-up.

She will receive the festival's prestigious Nova Award, which recognises "original and seamless performances".

A statement from festival bosses reads, "Few film artists are as talented and versatile as Jessica Chastain. She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is one of a kind and we couldn't be more pleased to honour her with the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award."

The stars will be celebrated during the five-day event, which kicks off on 12 June (13).
