Additionally to Holbrook, celebrity guests of this year comprise Frank Langella, Barry Levinson, Richard Roundtree, Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson, Katie Couric, and Jasmine Guy. The fiesta will start with the Virginia-made film’s world premiere "Big Stone Gap," that is completely based on the famous series of books by Adriana Trigiani, who would be in turnout with Judd and some other cast members.
Over 100 movies will be screened throughout the event of four-day, varying from comedies to documentaries like "Dumb and Dumber To."
The director Jody Kielbasa of the festival as well as vice provost for the arts at the Virginia University, has placed a guest’s lineup unparalleled in the history of festival.
