Benicio Del Toro Is Coming to AFI FEST
AFI FEST 2015 presented by Audi has added the special event On Acting: A Conversation with Benicio Del Toro to this year’s program.
Academy Award®-winning actor Benicio Del Toro will come to the festival on Saturday, November 7 at 11:00 a.m. for a conversation about his extensive career — which includes the films CHE (2008), 21 GRAMS (2003), TRAFFIC (2000), SNATCH (2000), FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS (1998) and THE USUAL SUSPECTS (1995) — and his acclaimed performance in this year’s SICARIO at the Egyptian Theatre. The Q&A will be moderated by Variety Deputy Awards and Features Editor Jenelle Riley.
Del Toro joins a prestigious group of previously announced actors and filmmakers appearing in conversation at AFI FEST, including Michael Caine, Paolo Sorrentino, Ridley Scott, SUFFRAGETTE director Sarah Gavron and writer Abi Morgan, as well as 45 YEARS stars and AFI FEST Tribute recipients Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay.
