The organisers of the 6th edition of Cineways Filmfestival in Braunschweig, Germany has announced they will be celebrating the James Bond franchise this year with two honourary guests, long-time FSWL supporters John Glen and Beatrice Libert. John will also be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at a special event during the festival.

Director John Glen, who recently published an updated version of his brilliant autobiography titled For My Eyes Only (first published in 2001), directed all five of Eon Productions James Bond films in the 1980s. A special message from John below:



The other Bond guest to attend, French actress Béatrice Libert (visit her official website) who appeared alongside the late Sir Roger Moore (read our obituary) in Moonraker (1979), will share her memories of working with the great Sir Roger.
