No matter how good your Halloween costume was this year, you've got nothing on Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Justin Timberlake as a '60s folk singer. Come get a free preview of two of the biggest films of the season—as well as many others—at the 27th annual AFI Festival.
Saving Mr. Banks will open the eight-day gala on November 7 at the Grauman's Chinese theater with a screening and red carpet event. Each day, a mix of films, lectures and special discussions will be offered at a variety of venues, including Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Chinese 6 and the Egyptian Theatre. The complete schedule of events is listed online, but highlights include centerpiece galas for August: Osage County, Out of the Furnace and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty; special screenings for Her, The Invisible Woman, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and Jodorowsky's Dune; as well as a world cinema, short films, breakthrough films and a competition for first- and second-time filmmakers.Inside Llewyn Davis, directed by the Coehn Brothers, will close the festival on November 14 with a special screening at 7:30pm.
All film tickets are free, but limited. Special packages that include such privileges as priority access, reserved seats, access to the VIP lounge and invitations to festival parties are available for $120-$5,000.
