ST.

SLIFF will screen 389 films: 81 narrative features, 63 documentary features, 227 shorts, and 18 film programs exclusive to the Cinema for Students program. The fest also will feature 12 special-event programs, including our closing-night awards presentation. This year's festival has 63 countries represented.

The festival will honor a trio of significant film figures with our annual awards:

Josh Aronson and Brad Schiff with Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis Awards
Lisa Cortés with a Women in Film Award.

The festival will kick off  on Thursday, Nov. 7, with the local premiere of the much-lauded "Marriage Story," starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, and directed by Noah Baumbach. A 6:30 PM reception precedes the film and features complimentary wine and Urban Chestnut beers.

As part of the fest's ongoing response to the Ferguson uprising, SLIFF again will feature a major stream of programming entitled Race in America: The Black Experience and offer a fourth edition of Mean Streets: Viewing the Divided City Through the Lens of Film and Television, which addresses the persistent issue of segregation.

The fest schedule, ticket and venue information, and a complete list of films (with descriptions) are available at the Cinema St. Louis website (https://cinemastlouis.org/festival-home).
