The Festival opens with AN AMERICAN HAUNTING, starring Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek and closes with AURORA BOREALIS, directed by James Burke, starring Joshua Jackson, Donald Sutherland (again) and Juliette Lewis.

The Festival also will host the World Premiere of I TRUST YOU TO KILL ME, a documentary following rocker Rocco DeLuca on his first international tour with Kiefer Sutherland on hand as a band booster and roadie. DeLuca and Kiefer Sutherland will attend the screening. Continuing its emphasis on music documentaries, the Festival also will host the North American preimere of TO TULSA AND BACK: ON TOUR WITH JJ CALE.

NaFF will once again be the host to many groundbreaking films, celebrities, numerous industry-related panels/workshops, filmmaker awards, Opening and Closing Galas, live entertainment and many more festivities throughout the week.

Former Vice President Al Gore has awarded this year’s Reel Current Award, given to the documentary that provides extraordinary insight into a contemporary global issue, to director Julie Gustafson for DESIRE.
