AFI Fest Plans Discussions on ‘The Martian,’ Michael Caine’s ‘Youth’

The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest has added a special screening of Michael Caine’s drama “Youth” and a conversation with Ridley Scott about “The Martian,” both on Nov. 11.

Caine and “Youth” director Paolo Sorrentino will discuss the film after the screening.

The festival, which runs Nov. 5-12, has also included a special dual tribute on Nov. 11 to the two stars of “45 Years,” Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay, who will appear onstage to reflect on their careers before a screening at the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Director Sarah Gavron and screenwriter Abi Morgan will discuss their film “Suffragette” on Nov. 8.

The festival will also screen the North American premiere of Italy’s Oscar candidate “Don’t Be Bad,”  directed by the late Claudio Caligari, in Nov. 9. Director Nicholas Brooks’ romantic comedy “Sam,” executive-produced by Mel Brooks, has been set for a Nov. 12 showing.

AFI has already announced a trio of world premieres for the Chinese: the opening night film, Angelina Pitt Jolie’s “By the Sea,” on Nov. 5; the Will Smith drama “Concussion” on Nov. 10; and closing night film, Adam McKay’s “The Big Short,” on Nov. 12.
