Swinton Sets Up Glamour-free Film Festival
Oscar winner TILDA SWINTON has become so disillusioned with celebrity-packed film festivals, she has set up her own which promises to be glamour-free.
The Michael Clayton actress recently spoke of her shock at the amount of free products handed out to stars at red carpet events, and has vowed to create a new event which focuses solely on movies.
The actress, along with celebrated director Joel Coen, has founded The Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams festival in her hometown of Nairn in north east Scotland.
The event will run between 15 and 23 August (08) and show three films a day. Entry to the festival costs $6 (GBP3) or a tray of homemade cakes, and guests will be seated on bean bags.
