OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: (November 9, 2005)

JAMES BOND 007 ON A SPECIAL MISSION TO QUÉBEC CITY IN FEBRUARY 2006

On February 24, 25 and 26, 2006, Québec City will be spellbound by Vue sur Bond 007, an unprecedented event that will feature Sir Roger Moore and a host of celebrities and artists who were involved in the filmography of the famous British secret agent.

The project was designed and produced to spotlight the contribution of Harry Saltzman, one of the most important producers of this series who also happens to have Québec roots. The project also aims to raise funds for the 7th edition of the 3 Americas Film Festival and UNICEF through cultural and sports activities. The guest celebrities will take part in these activities.

In addition to Sir Roger Moore, Québec City will welcome director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger (1964) 1964, Diamonds Are Forever 1971, Live and Let Die 1973, The Man with the Golden Gun 1974, actress and Swedish Bond girl Britt Ekland (The Man with the Golden Gun) and actor Richard Kiel aka Jaws (The Spy Who Loved Me 1977 and Moonraker (1979) 1979).

Honouring the event with her presence is Dame Shirley Bassey, the internationally renowned singer of the theme songs in Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker. She will perform in Vue sur Bond 007, Le Spectacle, an exceptional concert that will showcase the legendary music from the James Bond films. Under the artistic direction of Steve Barakatt and assisted by Pierre Gagnon, the event will take place on February 25 at 8pm at Grand Théâtre de Québec. It will also feature conductor, composer and arranger Nic Raine – a long-time collaborator of John Barry, notably on two Bond films (A View to a Kill 1985 and The Living Daylights 1987) – who will conduct the Orchestre symphonique de Québec for this occasion.

A tribute to such artists as Harry Saltzman, the screening of film clips and speeches from guest celebrities are also on the program for this memorable evening. Regular tickets (60 and 90 CAD + taxes and service charges) will go on sale on November 10 through Réseau Billetech. It is worth noting that the tickets for the first 8 rows – that also give access to a meet-and-greet charity cocktail party with the celebrities before the show – will cost 435 CAD plus taxes and must be purchased through the office of the 3 Americas Film Festival by calling (418) 647-1234 (Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm).

Also on February 25, from 10am to 1pm, Mont Sainte-Anne will host a ski competition in the style of James Bond chase scenes. Hundreds of people will be able to attend. More information on this activity, including how to purchase tickets, will be provided at a later date.

In addition, movie-goers can make their way to the IMAX theatre at Galeries de la Capitale on February 24, 25 and 26 to watch the first ten James Bond movies with live commentaries from the guest celebrities. These screenings, presented by Loto-Québec, will be free of charge and offered through a promotion that will be in effect in February 2006. Complete details will be revealed at a later date.

A few private donors will have the privilege of sharing an intimate meal with the celebrities, notably at Château Frontenac through a 2000 CAD per person charity dinner on Friday, February 24 (25 people in total) and at Café du Monde on Sunday, February 26 where brunch is offered at the price of 100 CAD (100 people in total).
