Julian Assange to speak at Jihlava festival via video link

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is set to speak at the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival by video link, the organisers said on Wednesday. Mr. Assange has been living at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for three years to avoid being extradited to Sweden, where he faces rape charges. He will appear in Jihlava’s Inspiration Forum, a festival sidebar that features interesting guests who may have nothing to do with film. This year’s festival, the 19th, takes place from October 27 to November 1.
