Veteran actor Bob Hoskins will be one of the guests at the 6th Annual British Film Festival, which will take place at the Haifa, Jerusalem, Nazareth and Tel Aviv cinematheques from January 19-28 and is co-sponsored by the British Council and presented with the participation of the British Embassy. Hoskins is probably best known for his role in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, but has appeared in over 80 films. He arrives with his latest film, Mrs. Henderson Presents, directed by Stephen Frears, also starring Judi Dench. Producer Norma Heyman will also be a guest of the festival. The opening film will be the latest version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this one starring Keira Knightley as the spunky heroine Elizabeth Bennett and Matthew MacFadyen as the elusive Mr. Darcy. The star-studded cast includes former Bond girl Rosamund Pike as Elizabeth‚s sister Jane, Brenda Blethyn and Donald Sutherland as their parents, and Judi Dench as a pushy visitor. The film's screenwriter, Deborah Moggach, will be a guest of the festival.
