Shanghai’s 17th International Film Festival (SIFF) will launch in a couple weeks on June 14th, and will be welcoming the likes of many Hollywood stars for the first time.

Considered one of the largest and quickly-growing international film festivals due to China’s skyrocketing box office, SIFF is expecting Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, Kirsten Dunst, and others to attend this year.

Portman will attend the Golden Goblet awards ceremony on the final day of the festival, marking her first visit to Shanghai. Kidman will be walking the red carpet for the opening ceremony of her latest film ‘Princess of Monoco’.

In addition to welcoming Hollywood celebrities, SIFF is also celebrating its first-ever female-led Golden Goblet jury. Chinese actress, Gong Li, is heading the seven-member jury panel that selects the festival’s best film.

SIFF is typically divided into four major sections; Film Competitions where the Golden Goblet is most prestigious, SIFF Mart, Film Forum, and International Panorama.

This year’s festival will include 900 screenings in 35 theatres.
