Hollywood star Tim Robbins and British actress DAME Helen Mirren will be honoured at California's Mill Valley Film Festival next month (OCT06). Mirren, who is being tipped for an Oscar for her portrayal of British royal Queen Elizabeth II in new movie THE QUEEN, will partake in an onstage interview on 7 October. Oscar winner Robbins will take part in a question and answer session on 11 October and a montage of his film clips will be shown. Festival founder and executive director of the California Film Institute MARK FISHKIN is delighted with the line-up for this year's extravaganza: "After 29 years, we're a mature organisation that has developed a reputation nationally and internationally. "When you look at what's happening this year at the festival, it's the culmination of three decades of work."
