The fest will bring industry folks like director Richard Linklater, whose helmed flicks like Before Sunrise and Dazed and Confused. He'll attend to promote the screening of his film Me and Orson Welles, which looks at Welles' historic staging of Julius Caesar. Actress Tilda Swinton will be there for the screening of I Am Love, in which she plays a wealthy woman who embarks on an affair with her grandson's friend.
The fest will also feature A Small Act, a 2010 New York Times Critic's Pick documentary about a Holocaust survivor who funded a Kenyan student's education. That student ended up becoming a United Nations human rights commissioner. The donor, Hilde Back, will be in attendance, as will producer Patti Lee and writer-director-producer Jennifer Arnold.
Fest passes are sold out, but individual tickets go on sale April 4 for $13 apiece. Book 'em quickly, since they'll probably go faster than freshly popped popcorn.
