Oscar winners grace festival

OSCAR-WINNING actresses Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman will attend the 17th Shanghai International Film Festival, to be held from June 14 to 22, organizers said yesterday.

Kidman will walk the red carpet at the opening ceremony, and her latest offering “Grace of Monaco” will be screened.

Portman, on her first visit to Shanghai, will attend the festival’s Golden Goblet awards ceremony on June 22.

Other international stars to take part in the festival include Britain’s Hugh Grant and Hayden Christensen from Canada. Grant will bring his new romantic movie “The Rewrite” while Christensen will be promoting the wartime epic “Outcast.” The Sino-US co-production also stars Nicolas Cage.

South Korean heartthrobs Rain, Song Seung-heon and actresses Son Tae-young and Park Shin-hye will also attend the festival’s major events.

Organizers said the steady growth of annual box office receipts has made China the world’s second-largest film market, attracting many international filmmakers to debut their work.
