‘Where to Invade Next,’ ‘The 33’ Set for AFI Fest Galas

The American Film Institute has set two more Centerpiece Galas for its AFI Fest — Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” and Patricia Riggen’s “The 33.”

Where to Invade Next,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, will screen Nov. 7 at the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the Egyptian. “The 33,” starring Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro and Juliette Binoche, will screen Nov. 9 at the TCL Chinese Theatre.

“Where to Invade Next” is being released by a new distribution company run by Tom Quinn, Jason Janego and Tim League.

“The 33” began its South American run in August. Warner Bros. will open it on Nov. 13 in the U.S.

The festival also unveiled its Special Screenings section, which will include Andrew Haigh’s “45 Years,” Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s “Anomalisa,” Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” Rodrigo Garcia’s “Last Days in the Desert,” Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Lobster,” Justin Kurzel’s “Macbeth” and Werner Herzog’s “Queen of the Desert.” Johnson and Garcia are AFI graduates.

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.
