Most of these are world premieres from up and coming directors so very little known about the movies or directors. Although some come with big names attached. Probably the biggest film announced today is Ghost Story in the NEXT category. It was a secret film that reteamed director David Lowery with Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara the stars of his breakout hit Ain’t them Body Saints. Among the documentaries announced we have another Jon Benet Ramsey doc but this time with a twist. One that could prove to be fascinating is a documentary about the Hulk Hogan vs Gawker trial.
There is also a new program this year call New Climate that will feature documentaries about “climate change and environmental preservations”. While the Film Festival has always had documentaries that dealt with environmental issues (An Inconvenient Truth, Gasland, and Chasing Ice) this is the first time it has had its own category. More info about the program will be coming but there are titles announced today that will be in the program.
