Hilary Swank in AmeliaFrom Brian Brooks’s indieWIRE story:

Mira Nair’s “Amelia” will open the inaugural Doha Tribeca Film Festival in the Middle Eastern capital of Qatar next month. The Fox Searchlight release recalls legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, starring two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank and Golden Globe winner Richard Gere. The new fest is part of a long-term partnership between the Qatar Museums Authority and Tribeca Enterprises, which oversees April’s annual Tribeca Film Festival. Thirty-two films will screen at the first festival, with 12 coming from the Middle East and additional titles from the international festival circuit. The DTFF will run from October 29 to November 1, 2009 in Doha, Qatar.

    Per my local theater, it comes out on the 23rd, so I guess it won’t be big news, right?
