Olivia Thirlby is set to be honored during the Humphrey Bogart Film Festival, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. The second annual festival takes place May 1-4 in Key Largo, Fla.

Thirlby stars in the noir thriller The White Orchid, a feature from Santana Films, a creative partnership between the Humphrey Bogart Estate and filmmaker Steve Anderson

Stephen Bogart, son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, tells THR the festival is a good way to honor his father's legacy.

"My co-managing partner, Robbert de Klerk, and I have really been focusing on the core mission of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, which is to honor and promote my father's legacy," Bogart says. "What better way to do that than to celebrate my father's films each year at our Humphrey Bogart Film Festival in Key Largo, and to bring back Santana Films in an effort to give the audience the kind of great noir tales Hollywood used to make."

During the fest, This Last Lonely Place, the first film from Santana Films, will screen. Star Carly Pope will attend.

Ahead of the Humphrey Bogart festival, This Last Lonely Place will premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival. It will screen April 26 at 5 p.m. at the 500-seat Lido Theatre. Leslie Bogart, daughter of Bogart and Bacall, will attend the screening.

In addition to its film ventures, the Humphrey Bogart Estate also recently announced a 90-piece furniture collection, which launches this week at the trade show High Point Furniture Market in High Point, N.C. The estate has partnered with Fine Furniture Design for the collection.
