Cyrano De Bergerac director Jean-Paul Rappeneau will attend the London screening of the film.
The French Film Festival UK - which will screen at 30 cinemas across the country when it opens this week - has announced further guests who will be in attendance.
Gilles Lelouche will be at London's Ciné Lumière on November 9 for the screening of feel-good drama Sink Or Swim. Tonie Marshall will also attend Ciné Lumière on November 7, to present Woman Up!, which shows a woman's struggle in the corporate world.
First-time director Marie Monge will attend the Edinburgh Filmhouse screening of Treat Me Like Fire on November 13 and Laetitia Carton will be at the screening of documentary Le Grand Bal at Edinburgh Summerhall on December 4, which will feature a post-screening dance event to echo the film's themes.
Festival director Richard Mowe said: “This is a particularly rich and vibrant edition which reaches to far flung corners of the UK and to different communities in our cities and further afield. There is something for everyone in the selection of a Festival that crosses cultural borders and whose ethos is as inclusive as possible."
