So this sure sounds like it will be a highlight of 2015’s film festival circuit: On October 12th, Mill Valley will host a special on-stage conversation with Ian McKellen (receiving an award at the fest), with a companion piece called “Women I’ve Filmed With.”
“Share in the passion and enthusiasm of this prolific actor as he recalls his favorite moments working with some of cinema’s most legendary actresses,” Mill Valley said in a press release. “From Ava Gardner and Meryl Streep to Mrs. Harold Pinter (Vivien Merchant) and Laura Linney, McKellan has worked with the best on-screen. McKellen proposed this presentation specifically for MVFF, a unique event, never to be repeated.”
It all goes down October 12th at noon at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center.
