WAILEA, Hawaii -- Teen heartthrob Zac Efron will be honored by the Maui Film Festival in Hawaii later this month with its Shining Star Award.

The star of "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" and "17 Again" will accept the award June 16, the festival's opening night.

Festival director Barry Rivers says the 22-year-old actor is an "exemplary shining star."

Rivers says this year's mantra is "Trust the Future," and Efron is an actor with an extraordinary career behind him and an even more brilliant one ahead of him.
