The Camerimage Film Festival is to open with the Polish premiere of Disney’s Saving Mr Banks, the story of how Mary Poppins was brought to the big screen.
John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) directs Emma Thompson as the author of Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers, and Tom Hanks as Walt Disney. Supporting cast includes Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti and Ruth Wilson.
Cinematography was handled by Oscar-nominated John Schwartzman (Seabiscuit, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor).
The gala screening will take place on Nov 16 at Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz, Poland – just three weeks before the film’s US wide release.
The 21st edition of Camerimage, the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, will run from Nov 16-23.
