14th Annual Hollywood Film Festival unveils line-up The 14th Annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Awards, presented by Starz, has unveiled its line-up of finalists for this year’s festival, founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu announced today. The programming includes features, documentaries and shorts from around the world.
The Hollywood Film Festival, which takes place October 22-25 at ArcLight Cinemas, will open on Friday, October 22, with the feature “RECONCILIATION: MANDELA’S MIRACLE,” a sensitive documentary about how Nelson Mandela saved his country from bloody civil war and dismantled the system of apartheid through the spirit of reconciliation. The documentary was directed by Michael Henry Wilson and stars FW De Klerk, Zindzi Mandela, Clint Eastwood, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Francois Pienaar and The Springboks.
This year’s lineup includes “THE 5TH QUARTER,” a film by Rick Bieber that is based on real events in 2006 and stars Aidan Quinn, Andie MacDowell, and Ryan Merriman; “BENEATH THE BLUE,” directed by Michael D. Sellers and starring Paul Wesley as a young Naval officer who is assigned to “recover” a dolphin that has disappeared from the Navy’s Marine Mammal program; “BLACK, WHITE AND BLUES,” a film by Mario Van Peebles that stars Michael Clarke Duncan, Tom Skerritt, Kiele Sanchez, Taryn Manning, Luke Perry, and Morgan Simpson; “BROTHER’S JUSTICE,” directed by David Palmer and Dax Shepard, and starring Dax Shepard, Tom Arnold, Nate Tuck, Bradley Cooper, and David Koechner; “FORT MCCOY,” a film by Kate Connor and Michael Worth that stars Eric Stoltz, Kate Connor, Lyndsy Fonseca, Andy Hirsch, Camryn Manheim, and Seymour Cassel, and is based on the true story of Kate Connor’s grandparents when they lived next to a Nazi POW camp in Wisconsin during WWII — a coming-of-age story, a romance and the journey of one man struggling to find his worth in a war that does not want him; and “WILD TARGET,” a film by Jonathan Lynn that stars Emily Blunt, Bill Nighy, Rupert Grint, and Rupert Everett. It is the story of Rose, a beautiful, quick-witted con-artist, who makes a killing selling fake paintings. But when she scams an art loving gangster, he sets Europe’s most efficient and expensive assassin on her tail.
