Rickman, who has directed and stars in A Little Chaos, will be at the Glasgow Film Theatre on 21 February for a gala screening of the film, which received its world premiere at in Toronto last year.
Winslet plays a strong-willed landscape designer who challenges sexual and class barriers when she is chosen to build one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s new palace at Versailles.
Rickman, who took on directing duties for a second time on A Little Chaos, plays the monarch with a penchant for lavish statements.
Actors Gary Lewis and David Hayman, and writer William McIlvanney, have already been confirmed for special appearances in this year’s festival, which starts a week today with the European premiere of new Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts comedy While We Were Young.
