Aidan Turner to Guest at Odessa International Film Festival

Aidan Turner is to be a guest at the Odessa International Film Festival in July according to Hollywood Reporter. The festival runs 11-19 July so comes towards the end of the location filming of Poldark which seems rather odd although, not knowing Aidan's schedule, not impossible.Other guests include Lord David Puttnam and director Stephen Frears.

The festival has an international competition of twelve films and a national one of seven. New this year is a prize for best actor.

With Ukraine being in a state of unrest, the festival is heartened by the support it has received worldwide. Festival president Viktoriya Tigipko said: "This year has been very difficult and at the same time momentous both for the country and every one of us. Our team is doing our very best for this festival to happen and be held on a top level."

Aidan is known to be a great supporter of international film, regularly attending the Subtitle European Film Festival in Ireland. Here is a picture of him having fun at last year's festival from Subtitle's facebook page.
