The ADL Film Fest Fund today announced the internationally anticipated HOTEL MUMBAI is set for an Australian Premiere at the 2018 ADL Film Fest Opening Night Gala on Wednesday 10 October.

Directed by Anthony Maras and starring Armie Hammer, Dev Patel, Nazanin Bonaidi, Tilda Cobham-Hervey, with Anupam Kher, and Jason Isaacs, Hotel Mumbai tells the astonishing story of those trapped in the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in the 2008 attacks.
The film’s key creatives including South Australian director Anthony Maras and producer Julie Ryan will be in attendance, with additional special guests to be announced. The event kicks off the festival’s boldly curated 11-day programme of screenings and events.
