Dubai International Film Festival to host public conversation with leading actor Colin Farrell
A-list American actor Colin Farrell, attending the seventh Dubai International Film Festival for the 'Cinema of the World' gala of his movie 'The Way Back,' will participate in a public 'In Conversation With,' question-and-answer session with fans on Sunday, Dec. 19 at the First Group Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah, from 4 to 5 pm. Tickets to the event, priced at AED 25, are on sale now.
Colin Farrell, the star of In Bruges, Phone Booth and Minority Report, has legions of fans across the world, and had earlier walked the red carpet at DIFF along with the cast of 'The Way Back,' including Jim Sturgess (Heartless, 21, The Other Boleyn Girl), Ed Harris (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, Appaloosa), Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, City of Ember, The Lovely Bones), Mark Strong, Dragoş Bucur, and Gustaf Skarsgård.
