Important guests at the Zurich Film Festival. At the invitation of IWC Schaffhausen, the German star photographer Peter Lindbergh and the Australian film star Cate Blanchett will attend the ZFF. Together, they will open an exclusive exhibition at the Festival Centre with photographs by Peter Lindbergh. In the evening, Cate Blanchett will present Woody Allen’s film BLUE JASMINE, in which she plays the leading role.
It is thanks to the watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen that Peter Lindbergh’s new photographs can be seen for the first time here at the ZFF before they will continue on a tour around the world. Peter Lindbergh and Cate Blanchett open the photo exhibition in the presence of Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, and the ZFF Co-Directors Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri. In the evening, Cate Blanchett will answer questions about her career in the cinema corso, following the Special Screening of BLUE JASMINE.
The exhibition, which takes place under the title “Timeless Portofino”, launches the new Portofino watch line from IWC and shows several Hollywood stars as well as supermodels posing with the new watches. “Timeless Portofino” is open from September 28 until the end of the festival on October 5 at the Festival Centre at Sechseläutenplatz.
