Stockholm, Nov 15 (IANS) Audiences and officials at the Stockholm Film Festival have expressed solidarity with the victims of the terror strikes in Paris, where more than 120 people were killed.

“Our thoughts are with the people of France. What has happened in Paris is a terrible tragedy, and the events have shocked and saddened us all. We will hold a moment of silence before the Scandinavian premiere of ‘Marguerite’ by French director Xavier Giannoli instead of the scheduled ‘Face2Face’,” said Git Scheynius, director of Stockholm International Film Festival.
Giannoli cut his festival trip short on Saturday and returned to Paris, reports variety.com.
