This is a black and white photo of festival attendees taken during the 1956 film festival. The group are dressed in formal evening wear, with the men wearing dark evening suits and Moira Lister wearing an off-the-shoulder long dark-coloured gown. Three of the men on the right of the photo hold a cigarette in their right hand and all are animated in mid-conversation.
