Ashley Greene and Anna Kendrick are two of artists that have been named as honorees for the 2011 Spotlight Awards hosted by the The Creative Coalition. The Spotlight Initiative was created in 2008 to support independent films with messages that make a positive difference in the world and celebrate the art and craft of filmmaking for their social relevance. Ashley gained attention for her work in the film “Butter” about an adopted girl who discovers her talent for butter carving and competes against an ambitious local woman in their town’s annual contest. Anna’s work in 50/50, a film about a 27 year old man’s battle to beat cancer, is what caught the attention of the Creative Coalition. The awards will be given out at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 10.
