Karlovy Vary completes lineup

The Karlovy Vary Film Festival unveiled its final lineup Tuesday, adding pics from China, Russia, Iran, Spain, the former Yugoslavia and Canada to the main competish slate.

Fest hosts the world preem of Frederic Sojcher’s mockumentary thriller “Hitler in Hollywood,” which centers on a plot against European cinema. Fest artistic director Eva Zaoralova described it as a “mystification of documentaries.”

Other additions are Chi Zhang’s “Diago,” which examines post-colonial life in Macau, and Fardin Saheb Zamani’s “There Are Things You Don’t Know,” billed as a kind of “Mean Streets” of Tehran.

U.S. producer Ron Yerxa presides over the jury, which also includes helmers Lee Chang-dong of South Korea and Alexei Popogrebsky of Russia.

The fest, which runs July 2-10, will award Russian actor, director and producer Nikita Mikhalkov a Crystal Globe, and will screen his latest film, “Burnt by the Sun 2: Exodus.”
