MAOW kicking off the New Orleans Film Festival  
New Orleans Film Festival lineup to feature bold-faced names
Mike Scott, The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Film Society today (Sept. 16) will announce the lineup for October's 20th-anniversary New Orleans Film Festival, a varied program that will boast films featuring such bold-face names as director Francis Ford Coppola, actors Zac Efron and Emily Blunt, U2 guitarist The Edge and -- Orson Welles?

Well, sort of.

The festival's high-profile opening-night slot Oct. 9 goes to "Me and Orson Welles," starring Efron and Claire Danes in a story of a teenager cast in a 1937 production of the legendary director's Mercury Theatre production of "Julius Caesar." Director Richard Linklater ("Dazed and Confused," "The School of Rock") is expected to be in attendance.

If you are interested, more of the festival's lineup is discussed in the remainder of the article, which is here.

eta: fixed the title, lol. that's what i get for posting this only half-awake.
