Closing Night Gala Announced

The festival announced the film for the closing night gala: Stone of Destiny, from writer/directory Charles Martin Smith, and starring Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty), Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings), and Brenda Fricker. Based on a true story, the film follows four Scottish university students who decide to steal an ancient Scot artifact that had been taken by the English in 1296, and return it to Scotland. The film had its world premiere back in June at the Edinburgh International Film Festival; this will be the North American premiere.

One way to see this film in style is with the Closing Night Gala package ($175), that includes a pre-movie cocktail party plus a ticket to the film.
