Top names unveiled for Isle of Wight film event

A film event taking place on the Isle of Wight has revealed that a host of top names are set to take part.

The highlight of the 2011 Minghella Film Festival is likely to be a showcase of the new movie by Kevin Macdonald, who is known for his acclaimed pictures One Day in September, State of Play, The Last King of Scotland and Touching the Void.

A gala preview of The Eagle, his latest film, which was produced by Anthony Minghella's friend Duncan Kenworthy, will be followed by a post-screening party at The William Coppin, Newport, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Another likely highlight is expected to be the newcomers' gala event, which will see the winners presented with a prize by actors Robert Sheehan and Lauren Socha, who star in E4's superhero drama Misfits.

Gioia Minghella, Anthony's sister, said: "It will be possible to find some of the most respected works for cinema today alongside previews of exciting new films, while generating meaningful funds for worthwhile causes."
