The Palm Beach International Film Festival announced its film line up. The festival is running from April 23 to April 27, 2009 in Palm Beach, Florida. Over 110 films will screen at the festival this year. “We’re a little shorter this year, yet we have added more venues, as well as a second weekend featuring the ‘Best of the Fest,” said Emerman.

The film “Stone of Destiny” opens the festival. The film stars Kate Mara, Charlie Cox, Robert Carlyle, Billy Boyd and Ciaron Kelly. It re-tells the true story of four young students who, outwitted the British authorities in their successful attempt to take back the Coronation Stone – Stone of Scone, a beloved symbol of Scottish pride – from Westminster Abbey back to its country of origin.
