Susan Sarandon, Olivia Colman and Paul Mescal join star donors of Cinema for Gaza auction

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gives jam as swathe of film and TV celebrities add support, including Zone of Interest’s Jonathan Glazer and Thor’s Tessa Thompson

A host of film directors and stars, including Susan Sarandon, Paul Mescal and Olivia Colman, have added their names to those offering time and memorabilia to a Cinema for Gaza auction that is raising funds for humanitarian relief in Palestine. Joining the celebrities is the former Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn – billed as the star of Sumotherhood, thanks to his cameo in last year’s Adam Deacon urban thriller – who is donating a Zoom poetry reading and a selection of homemade jam. The auction, which was announced late last month with lots including a Zoom bedtime story from Tilda Swinton and a porridge tutorial with Josh O’Connor, has been set up by a collective of UK-based film-makers and authors.
