Our Visiting Director has made his selection!
Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways) will be presenting our Closing Night Film HE WHO GETS SLAPPED. We are thrilled that Payne is taking time to be with us for the entire festival between wrapping The Descendants, starring George Clooney, and scouting locations for his next film, to begin shooting in late summer!
Author, film critic, and long-time festival favorite Leonard Maltin
will present DISNEY'S LAUGH-O-GRAMS with film historian J.B. Kaufman (they'll also be signing books after the program).
Maltin will return to the stage on Closing Night to introduce Alexander Payne.
