written by Neide XVI.XI

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the lineup for the 35th edition of Turin Film Festival and guess who made it? The Disaster Artist, of course! The movie will be screening in the “After Hours” section, and the festival will run from November 24-December 2 in Turin, Italy!

The 35th Turin Film Festival on Tuesday unveiled that it will screen 134 feature films as part of its lineup, including 36 world premieres and 21 international premieres, with 40 films being directors’ first or second features.

The opening-night film will be Richard Loncraine’s bittersweet comedy Finding Your Feet, staring Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie, David Hayman, John Sessions and Joanna Lumley.

As usual, Turin’s main competition focuses on emerging filmmakers in an effort to highlight new talent. Directors including David Gordon Green, Pablo Larrain, and Damien Chazelle have won the main prize in the past at the beginning of their careers.

Larrain will serve as president of this year’s jury, awarding prizes for best film, special jury award, best actor and actress and screenplay.

Among this year’s competition lineup is Armando Iannucci’s second feature, The Death of Stalin. Anahita Ghazvinizadeh will screen his coming-of-age film They, which is produced by Jane Campion. Other entries include The White Girl from Jenny Suen and Christopher Doyle, Daphne by Peter Mackie Burns, Blue Kids by Andrea Tagliaferri, Beast by Michael Pearce, Barrage by Laura Schroeder and Bamy by Jun Tanaka.


In the “After Hours” section, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist about Tommy Wiseau’s cult film The Room will play as will David Freyne’s zombie thriller The Cured, starring Ellen Page, and Ana Asensio’s psychological thriller Most Beautiful Island.
