Morocco is set to get an injection of international glamour, as THR just announced that Sharon Stone and Juliette Binoche will be honored at the Marrakech International Film Festival, receiving career tributes when it kicks off at the end of the month. This comes off the heels of a great year on screen for the actresses, with Stone garnering praise for her intense role as porn star Linda Lovelace's mother in "Lovelace" and Binoche as French artist Camille Claudel in "Camille Claudel, 1915." Japanese director Hirokazu Kor-eda and Argentine director Fernando Solanas will also be honored at the festival, which runs from November 29 to December 7.
Now in its 13th year, the Marrakech International Film Festival has grown in size and star power, with Martin Scorsese, Marion Cotillard and Patricia Clarkson having already been announced as jury members of this year's edition. Other attendees set to be at the festival include Noomi Rapace, who will be part of a tribute to Swedish cinema, and directors Nicolas Winding Refn and James Gray, both of whom will be teaching master classes.
