AFM slate goes public

Pix selected are predominately French, English, Asian

Santa Monica residents and anyone working in the entertainment biz can attend the American Film Market’s Public Previews program, which will screen 44 features when the market gets under way next week.

The screening series, launched in 1999, was designed to extend the reach of AFM beyond just acquisition and distribution exes, and allow members of the general public to see films before their official release dates.

Titles selected this year for public viewing are predominately French, English and Asian.

They include Patrice Chereau’s French drama, “Gabrielle,” Glen Stephens’ “Hoboken Hollow” and Xavier Beauvois’ “Le petit lieutenant.”

Film fest crowdpleaser “Tsotsi,” helmed by Gavin Hood and based on Athol Fugard’s book, also will be screened.

AFM runs Nov. 2-9 in Santa Monica. Those wanting to take part in the public screenings must register online for a badge.
