    People behind films are stars in their own right
    Doug Penikas received his acceptance to the Newport Beach Film Festival in the most unceremonious of ways — an email that landed in his junk folder. "I didn't believe it," he said. "I thought it was a hoax. Especially when I couldn't tell anyone...
