AFI Fest 2012 Hits Hollywood

Anthony Hopkins stars as Alfred Hitchcock in Hitchcock,
opening AFI Fest 2012.

Where better than AFI Fest 2012, held at multiple venues in the heart of Hollywood, to catch the buzzed-about films of today en route to becoming the Oscar winners of tomorrow?

Those who attended the screening for The Artist at last year’s festival, for which Pedro Almodóvar served as guest artistic director, might argue nowhere. Celebrating its 26th year as a program of the American Film Institute on Nov. 1-8, AFI Fest brings together established and emerging filmmakers from around the world to present their work to movie-loving audiences and the entertainment community. The world premiere of Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins in the role of director/producer Alfred Hitchcock, opens the festival. The closing-night film is Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, featuring Daniel Day-Lewis as America’s 16th president. Screenings are free. Screenings at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Chinese 6 Theatres at Hollywood & Highland Center, Egyptian Theatre and Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
