Cattrall is slated to kick-off the Festival’s opening night Red Carpet on Friday, June 10, 2011 at Paseo Herencia, and the “In Conversation With” series on Saturday, June 11, 2011, according to AIFF Founders and Producers Giuseppe Cioccarelli and Jonathan Vieira and Artist Director Claudio Masenza.
Cattrall’s impressive cross-platform acting career has included film, stage and television, and she is a New York Times best-selling author. The most substantial work Catrall has contributed to entertainment and pop culture has been her role of Samantha Jones on HBO’s “Sex and the City” franchise. Catrall has been celebrated and recognized for her work in the series with a Golden Globe, two SAG Awards, and five Emmy Award nominations.
Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme (“The Silence of the Lambs,” “The Manchurian Mandate”), BAFTA Film Award-winning Hollywood wardrobe designer Michael Kaplan (”Blade Runner,” “Burlesque,” “Fight Club”) and Academy Award®-nominated director Milcho Manchevski (“Before the Rain,” “Mothers”) are also set to attend.
Demme will begin his series on June 12th while Kaplan and Manchevski’s dates will be announced later this month.
This year’s Festival takes place June 10-16, 2011. The annual AIFF will bring people from around the world to view a wide selection of films, join in discussions and attend special parties and events.
