Twelve pics in the Intl. Competition section will fight for the Golden Raven prize, with U.S. thesp Michael Ironside leading the jury. A dozen Euro movies compete for the Silver Melies award.

World preems include five pics by Brits: Craig Rosenberg’s “Half Light,” John Williams’ “Starfish Hotel,” Jonathan English’s “Minotaur,” Michael J. Bassett’s “Wilderness” and Andrew Parkinson’s “Venus Drowning.”

Other world preems are Yuji Shimomura’s “Death Trance,” from Japan, and Gilles Daoust’s “The Room,” from Belgium.

Wes Craven will introduce Alexandre Aja’s remake of his own 1977 cult classic “The Hills Have Eyes” in the Night of Fantastic Film section, while Ken Russell will introduce his director’s cut of “The Devils,” starring Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave.
