Leon and Malik Yoba will serve as ambassadors to this year’s festival – bringing with them a wealth of experience in the film industry. Yoba and Leon will join in the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Cool Runnings, a true-life comedic saga of four athletes who go to extremes to compete as bobsled racers at the Winter Olympics. Actors will attend screening and meet-and-greet to allow fans an opportunity to learn more from their experiences.
