Anyways, the film festival runs from 15 to 26 June.

Some highlights, Keith Bearden's new film Meet Monica Velour, starring Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall. #AcademyAward, #Oscar-nominated screenwriter Sir David Hare for the premiere of political thriller Page Eight. Rock stars Rock stars Kings of Leon will be premiering their new documentary, Talihina Sky, at the festival on 25 June. among a host of UK's finest
