This year has a focus on Japan and “L’Afrique,” and, as always, has a great line-up for Valley of the Docs. This year also has some Big Events which are sure to sell out quickly, including screenings of the much-acclaimed films Blue is the Warmest Color and 12 Years a Slave; a tribute to Costa-Gavras; a 30th Anniversary screening of Return of the Jedi; and a 25th anniversary digital restoration of My Neighbor Totoro.
