The actress will attend the June film festival with her director husband Taylor Hackford who will introduce his own film, Parker, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Dame Helen, who played Alfred Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville opposite Anthony Hopkins in the Sacha Gervasi film Hitchcock, will meet the audience at a screening of the film on June 19.

The film follows the couple during the time that Hitchcock was making his classic horror film Psycho and the screening will be part of a showcase of Hitchcock's silent films from the 1920s.
