 The fourth annual Film Fest Twain Harte culminated Monday with the crowning of a former Twain Harte resident and his film as winner in several categories.

Mark Marchillo, now an emerging Hollywood director, won the audience choice award Monday for his film, “The Curse of the Unkissable Kid,” after being played first on opening night Friday. 


Films were played throughout the weekend at several Twain Harte venues. In the audience were three Hollywood actors who starred in the fest’s feature re-screening, Clint Eastwood’s “Pale Rider.” They were Herman Poppe, Jeffrey Weissman and S.A. Griffin. 

Formerly announced actress Syndey Penny, who also appeared in “Pale Rider,” was not able to attend.

Another Hollywood actress, Lee Meriwether, who starred in “Barnaby Jones” and “Batman: The Movie” as Catwoman, won “Most Outstanding Performance” for her role as a fortune teller in “The Curse of th e Unkissable Kid.”

Meriwether said it was a fun role. She also credited Marchillo for his work in writing, directing and choreographing “The Curse of the Unkissable Kid.”
