Second Annual 2012 Jean Seberg International Film Festival is set for November 8 – 11, at the IVCCD Orpheum Theater Center in Marshalltown, Iowa.

The four-day celebration of Jean Seberg’s life will once again capture the essence and being of the world-renowned actress from Marshalltown. Mark your calendars so you get a chance to celebrate Jean’s journey and transformation from Marshalltown girl, to Hollywood icon, and French heroine.
