This year’s BIFF will honor one of the greatest, most thought-provoking film directors of our time—three-time Oscar winner Oliver Stone (Midnight Express, Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July). Mr. Stone will receive BIFF’s Master of Cinema Award and sit down for an in-depth interview and retrospective of his films at the Closing Night ceremonies on Sunday, February 20th.
On Saturday, February 19th A Conversation with James Franco will highlight the Festival. From Freaks and Geeks to James Dean to the Spider-man trilogy to Milk to Howl, this Golden-globe and Oscar-nominated actor has shown great versatility and excellence in everything he does. Come see a screening of A Clerk’s Tale, a short film directed by Franco that premiered in Cannes last May, as well as a retrospective of his work. Franco will receive BIFF’s Vanguard Award, followed by an interview conducted by BIFF Executive Producer of Special Events, Ron Bostwick. Franco was just nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his performance as Aron Ralston in Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. Franco will co-host the Academy Awards one week after attending BIFF.
Also screening is our friend Morgan Neville's doc, Troubadours, a musical journey tracing the lives and careers of James Taylor and Carole King, pillars of the California singer/songwriter scene, which converged in and around LA’s Troubadour Club in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Troubadours is part of the opening night gala and will screen at 8:00 pm Thursday, February 17th.
