In impeccable evening dress, Mark Gatiss and Matthew Sweet ponder the Bonds we’ve seen on screen since Dr No in 1962. With the 2015 release of the 24th official James Bond film, Spectre, we ask – which 007 is the best? To date, six actors have portrayed British Secret Service agent James Bond. Was Sean Connery impossible to surpass? Was George Lazenby really that bad? Was Live and Let Die really a blaxploitation movie in disguise? Gatiss and Sweet consider these and many other questions, and raise a martini in honour of their premium Bond.

Festival Director Sunit Tandon said: “It is a first of its kind section at any film festival in the country, perhaps worldwide. The idea behind this was to be able to celebrate this highly popular franchise, tracing it through the years.

‘Films featuring all the actors who have played this iconic character have been showcased in this section. We are thankful to the producers and studios behind the franchise to help us make this possible and present this package as a whole.’

Former tennis champion Vijay Amritraj and actor Kabir Bedi, both of whom starred in ‘Octopussy’, will attend the special screening.
