LIFF28 will welcome some very special guests to attend films screening in its Cinema Versa documentaries and music film strand. Treasured Scottish singer-songwriter Edwyn Collins will attend The Possibilities Are Endless, the profoundly moving film about his recovery from a brain haemorrhage. Edwyn, best known as the frontman of indie pop group Orange Juice, and for his solo hit ‘A Girl Like You’ will appear for a Q&A and musical performance at Hyde Park Picture House on Thursday 13 November at 8.30pm.

DJ Gilles Peterson will appear at Leeds Town Hall on Thursday 6 November at 8.30pm, to talk  about how he created a Brazilian supergroup in Brasil Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira, an exploration of his love of the sounds of Rio-bossa, samba and Baile funk.  Featuring an amazing cast of musicians including Seu Jorge, Elza Soares, Wilson Das Neves, Ed Motta and Marcos Valle, this is a delectable voyage into the beating heart of Brazil. Director Charlie Inman will join Peterson for a Q&A.
