A Cornish film festival has announced producer and director Martin Scorsese will be its guest curator this summer.

The Mean Streets director has selected films that will be played on an outdoor, drive-in style cinema at the Port Eliot Festival in July.

Organisers said they were "currently unsure" whether the American would attend the event.

Scorsese's choices include the 1974 version of Murder On The Orient Express and All About Eve.

Festival co-founder Catherine St Germans said: "We could not have dreamt of a more illustrious programmer."

Mr Scorsese's other films include Gangs of New York, Shutter Island and Goodfellas.
