In addition, the Festival will welcome honorary guest host, Paolo deGuzman from DREAMWORKS.  From Salem, VA, deGuzman’s list of credentials is long and illustrious including work on Titanic, Shrek, Fight Club, How to Train Your Dragon 1 & 2, and many more.  Paolo will be returning home to celebrate the first year of a Film Lab in his home region.
