Film Festival Guests

Check here for a list of the announced guests for the festival.

One of the things I love about the Sydney Film Fesival (SFF or #sydfilmfest on twitter) is it's range of guests. This year the international guests include Ewan McGregor and Shirley Henderson who was unforgetable as Moaning Myrtle in the Harry Potter Franchise and Bridget Jones.

Henderson is one of the cast in Todd Solondz' "Life During Wartime" a sequel (with a new cast) to his controversial film "Happiness". I am sure the Q&A will be fascinating. One of my favourite actresses from The West Wing - Allison Janney also stars (alas she is not listed as coming to town).

McGregor is starring in Roman Polanski's "The Ghost Writer" which will probably sell out now that he is turning up. Should be brilliant.

The major speculation is if Kirsten Stewart - who was in town today - whether there will be an appearance at either of the Screenings of The Runaways - where she plays Joan Jett. There has been no announcement so I suspect not.
