Whoaaaaaaaaa, have you spied this year’s PFF lineup? It’s amazingly, particularly, spectacularly exciting. Why am I extra pumped for this year’s showings? Mostly because programmers have changed things up a bit - instead of just showstopping opening and closing night films this year, they’ve added a slate of special Gala films, much in the same way TIFF is programmed, adding more spectacle throughout the run of the fest. Many of the Gala presentations are high-profile titles recently screened at Cannes, TIFF, Telluride, Venice, and Fantastic Fest, making for a particularly energizing festival. But maybe you want to prioritize more offbeat fare this year? No matter what strategy you employ, we have you covered. Below is your guide to the big names coming to PFF for their 28th installment, along with MJ’s official, more quirky, selections. Happy festivaling!
