There are so many unique and strong voices and we’re really proud to champion these films at the festival.”

This year’s selections include Maslany in “Apart From Everything,” “The Dark of Night,” directed by Wright and starring Leslie Bibb and Sam Rockwell; McKellen in “Edmund the Magnificent,” Toby Jones in “The Entertainer,” Elba in “Five by Five,” Carrie Coon in “Great Choice,”Winslet in “The Lost Letter,” Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale in “Martha Monster,” Helena Bonham Carter in “Poles Apart,” and “Super Sex,” directed by Matthew Modine and starring Kevin Nealon, Edward Asner, Elizabeth Perkins and Efren Ramirez.

The festival is designated by AMPAS, BAFTA and BIFA as an award-qualifying festival. The Short Film Market that runs alongside the festival offers more than 4,200 films for screening.
