Official report from the festivities.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The largest Bond event in Scandinavia to date takes place on 19-21 September, and offers everything from the red carpet, a gala dinner, exclusive screenings and Q&A sessions with celebrities who have flown in from around the Bond world. Everything is designed to pay tribute to cinema's most legendary agent. All profits to benefit UNICEF.

On Friday the Bond event will open with a press conference featuring all of the celebrity guests. All film fans will then get a chance to relive some of the film classics and participate in exclusive Q&A sessions with the visiting celebrities. Over the weekend, a total of seven of the most popular Bond films will be screened at the Film House in Stockholm. Four of these will have their world premiere in their new, digitally remastered format.

Saturday's grand charity gala will be held at Solidaritet Arena. This will give guests a chance to mingle with experienced directors, several Swedish Bond girls, an Oscar® awarded sound editor and skilled stuntmen before being served a tasty three-course dinner. Entertainment will be provided by international artist / film star and singer of the Great American Songbook, popularised by Frank Sinatra, Robert Davi. Robert will be performing for the first time in Europe to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Licence to Kill in which he played the Bond villain, Franz Sanchez. He also appears in The Expendables 3 which has theatrical release on August 13th.
