"Black Book," by veteran director Paul Verhoeven ("Total Recall") will open the 10th anniversary of the Bermuda International Film Festival, while "Eagle vs. Shark," the first film by Kiwi stand-up comedian Taika Waititi, will close the event. The festival will take place on the mid-Atlantic island from March 16-24, 2007, offering 85 films from 32 countries. Also at this year's BIFF, actor Earl Cameron, who is a Bermudian by birth, will return to the island to be honored with a film retrospective and participate in "A Conversation With... Earl Cameron" on Saturday, March 17. "Mr. Cameron has been widely hailed as the most successful black actor that Britain has produced, and rightly so," says the festival's director of programming, David O'Beirne in a statement. "His career has spanned more than half a century, and he continues to be a working actor today."
