PARIS -- The 35th Deauville American Film Festival will kick off with a romantic romp through the ages when New Line's "The Time Traveler's Wife" opens the festival on September 4th, organizers said Tuesday.
The 10-day ode to US cinema has added several films to its previously announced lineup, including Competition titles Jonas Pate's "Shrink" starring Kevin Spacey and Miguel Arteta's "Youth in Revolt" with Michael Cera, Justin Long and Ray Liotta.
Josh Goldin's Matthew Broderick-starrer "Wonderful World" will premiere in the territory out of competition alongside Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles," Paola Mendoza and Gloria La Morte's "Entre Nos" and US summer blockbuster Neill Blomkamp's "District 9."
Documentaries "Facing Ali," "Outrage" and "William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe" will all premiere in the "Uncle Sam's Docs" sidebar.
Andy Garcia, who will be in town for an homage to his acting career, will give a masterclass on Saturday, Sept. 12 for public cinephiles.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet's feature film jury will also include actor-screenwriter-director Bruno Podalydes and actress Deborah Francois and Maiwenn's Cartier Revelation jury has added actress Louise Monot to its star-powered team.
The Deauville American Film Festival runs Sept. 4-13 in the posh Normandy beachside town.
