‘Boyhood,’ ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ to be Featured at Seattle Film Festival

The 40th Seattle International Film Festival has announced its full lineup which includes “The Fault in Our Stars,” starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Laura Dern.

Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” will also be featured as the Centerpiece Gala Screening, with Linklater scheduled to attend.

“This year, SIFF continues to be a festival of discovery, with more than 100 new directors making their debut,” said Carl Spence, SIFF’s artistic director. “Richard Linklater was one of those filmmakers back in 1990 with the premiere of ‘Slacker;’ it’s fitting to have him return for our anniversary with his masterwork ‘Boyhood– unlike any other film I’ve seen.”

The U.S.’s largest festival will screen 440 films: 198 features, 60 documentaries, 14 archival films and 168 shorts.

Other films featured include Kim Basinger, Richard Jenkins and Cam Gigandet in “4 Minute Mile”; Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Miranda Otto, and Mia Wasikowska in “The Turning”; Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler in “They Came Together” and “How To Train Your Dragon 2.”

Quincy Jones will be presented with a lifetime achievement award at the screening of the doc “Keep on Keepin’ On.” “The One I Love” is set to close with Elisabeth Moss, Mark Duplass and director Charlie McDowell scheduled to attend.

The SIFF  takes place May 15 – June 8.
