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.

The Way Back, the first film in seven years from master director Peter Weir, is an Exclusive Media Group, National Geographic Entertainment and Imagenation Abu Dhabi presentation and an Exclusive Films presentation. The gripping film tells the story of a multicultural group of prisoners who escape from a Stalinist gulag during World War II but then have to survive walking more than 5,000 miles of treacherous trails across five countries to gain their freedom.

DIFF 2010 box office locations are: Cinestar Mall of the Emirates, Madinat Souk and the CNN Building in Dubai Media City and The Walk at JBR. Tickets can also be purchased through DIFF's Dial-a-Ticket service at (04) 391 3378 and from the website

The seventh edition of Dubai International Film Festival 2010 will be held from December 12 to 19. DIFF 2010 is held in association with Dubai Studio City. Dubai Duty Free, Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai Pearl, Emirates Airline and Madinat Jumeirah, the home of the Dubai International Film Festival, are the principal sponsors of DIFF. The event is supported by the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority.
