Sean Bean will support Niki Caro’s NORTH COUNTRY, screening at 6:50 PM on Monday Sept 12 at Roy Thomson Hall.
Cate Blanchett will support Rowan Woods’ LITTLE FISH, screening at 3 PM on Sunday Sept 11 at the Elgin Theatre.
Orlando Bloom will support Cameron Crowe’s ELIZABETHTOWN, screening at 9:30 PM on Saturday Sept 10 at Roy Thomson Hall (right after A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE).
Sir Ian McKellen will support Joshua Michael Stern’s NEVERWAS, screening details TBA Tuesday Aug 30.
Viggo Mortenson will support David Cronenberg’s A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, screening at 6:30 PM on Saturday Sept 10 at Roy Thomson Hall (followed by ELIZABETHTOWN).
Hugo Weaving will support Rowan Woods’ LITTLE FISH, screening at 3 PM on Sunday Sept 11 at the Elgin Theatre.
Elijah Wood will support Liev Schreiber’s EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED, screening details TBA Tuesday Aug 30.
As the festival runs 10 days, not all of the stars will necessarily be in town at the same time, but who knows, there may be some LOTR reunions taking place. Of note, Roy Thomson Hall screenings are across the street from the Princess of Wales Theatre where the Lord of the Rings musical will debut in February 2006.
