Multi-Academy Award winning producer Harvey Weinstein is the subject of the Canberra International Film Festival’s inaugural Body of Work retrospective, so he’s coming to town.
Details are sketchy ahead of the official announcement of the program this week but the multi-Academy Award-winning producer of Shakespeare in Love and Pulp Fiction will be in the nation’s capital for the festival from October 30 to November 10. And he may be joined by some of the stars or directors of his films, which include a batch of anticipated Academy Award contenders: The Butler, August: Osage County, Fruitvale Station, Grace of Monaco and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The Weinstein Company’s recent acquisitions include Australian films Tracks, starring Mia Wasikowska, and Jonathan Teplitzky’s The Railway Man, with Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.blockquote>
Producers don’t get much attention from the movie going public as directors and actors do, but Weinstein’s body of work is something to behold so well done Canberra International Film Festival for getting him.
