The fourth annual 3D Film Festival announces its lineup for 2010. It opens September 30 with the U.S. premiere of Giwa and Dania Pasquini's Streetdance 3D, starring Charlotte Rampling, and closes on October 3 with Joe Dante's The Hole.

The 3D Film Festival now has a RealD 3D home at the Los Angeles Film School, where their educational Academy programs will also take place, including the 72 Hour 3DFF Short Film Festival, which offers students 72 hours to complete a 3D short film. A mix of feature and short, studio and independent 3D films will be screened throughout the fest. Filmmaker Q & As include Piranha 3D and How To Train Your Dragon.


Streetdance 3D follows a dance crew who, hungry to win a street-dance competition, work at the Royal Dance School in exchange for rehearsal space. The Hole, which won Venice Fest's best 3D film in 2009, centers on two brothers who discover a hole in their basement that leads into their own dark nightmares. Rounding out the features are Dark Country, directed by and starring Thomas Jane, and Stephen Manuel's Iron Doors.

Other categories include Kids and Family, Midnight Horror, Shorts and Music Videos, including We are the World, the star-packed Haiti relief effort which includes Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand and Kanye West.
