The festival will also present five of Potter’s films in its Close Up section: Orlando, The Tango Lesson, Yes, Ginger & Rosa and The Party.
Potter directed her first feature film, experimental drama The Gold Diggers, in 1983. She has subsequently directed seven further features, including twice Oscar-nominated Orlando (1992) and last year’s satirical dinner party drama The Party.
