The 15th edition of the Monte-Carlo Comedy Film Festival, an event founded by Ezio Greggio to present the best international comedies, starts Monday.

Australian actor and Calvin Klein model Travis Fimmel will present the Finding Steve McQueen in a world premiere on Friday.

Fimmel plays the role of the protagonist Harry James Barber, wanted by the FBI for hold-up and conspiracy.

The Festival’s Jury will be presided by French director Claude Lelouch, who will be receive the Movie Legend Award during the closing Gala on Saturday, March 3.

Variety magazine critic Nick Vivarelli will also be part of the Jury, as well as Italian actresses Nancy Brilli and Valeria Solarino.
