Filmhouse Cinema in Edinburgh has announced that renowned director William Friedkin will take part in a Q&A after a special screening of his 1971 film The French Connection on June 19. Friedkin, pictured, will be in Edinburgh for the UK premiere of his new film Killer Joe, which will open the Edinburgh International Film Festival gala on June 20. Friedkin won the Academy Award for Best Director for The French Connection but is arguably better known for directing the horror film The Exorcist.
