Stars, directors and screenwriters far and wide often attend on exclusive event panels to promote their films, and fans are often treated to never-before-seen footage, a lively round table discussion between the cast and crew of a variety of different films, and generally a Q&A session to ask about all the latest information regarding the most highly anticipated movies.
