Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Nightcrawler” has been set as the opening night screening for the 10th annual Film Independent Forum at the Directors Guild of America on Oct. 24.

The pic will be followed by a Q&A with director Dan Gilroy and producer Jennifer Fox. Open Road is releasing “Nightcrawler” on Oct. 31.

Jill Soloway, whose credits include “Transparent,” “Afternoon Delight” and “United States of Tara,” will deliver the filmmaker keynote address on Oct. 25. The executive keynote address will be given the next day by Tim League, CEO of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Drafthouse Films

“Filmmaking provides the ideal opportunity to reverse the polarity around the seer and the seen,” Soloway said. “I’m so excited to share my ideas about how to make the kind of art that changes the world by captivating and illuminating authentic feelings.”
