Estoril fest changes name, location

Wenders, Doyle to attend event

LISBON — Helmer Wim Wenders, cinematographer Christopher Doyle, novelists Paul Auster, Peter Handke and Don de Lillo and French culture minister Frederic Mitterrand, are among guests attending the fifth Estoril Film Festival.

In order to bridge a funding gap this year, the fest’s main sessions will be held in the Portuguese capital and it has been rebranded the Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival.

Portuguese premieres include opening films, George Clooney’s “The Ides of March” and Gus Van Sant’s “Restless,” fest closer “The Skin I Live In” from Pedro Almodovar, plus David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” Lars von Trier’s “Melancholia” and Alexander Sokurov’s Venice Golden Lion winner, “Faust.”

Fest director Paulo Branco aims to screen Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” and Todd Haynes’ miniseries “Mildred Pierce.” There will be tributes to helmers William Friedkin, Wes Anderson, Leos Carax and the late Raul Ruiz.

The competitive section, dedicated to young European filmmakers, will be announced in early October.

The Lisbon and Estoril Film Festival runs Nov. 4-13.
