The AFI FEST has added a world premiere to their lineup, after Sony Pictures Classics pushed back Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" to 2014: Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace," starring Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck and Forest Whitaker (November 9). 

Other Centerpiece Gala selections announced by Fest director Jacqueline Lyanga include Alexander Payne's "Nebraska," along with a tribute to Best Actor Cannes-winner Bruce Dern (November 11), as well as Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"(November 13), which debuts at the New York Film Festival next weekend. 

As previously announced, the North American Premiere of John Lee Hancock's "Saving Mr. Banks," starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as "Mary Poppins" author P.J. Travers,  is the Opening Night Gala on November 7 and the closer will be the Coens brothers' portrait of the 60s folk scene starring Oscar Isaac, "Inside Llewyn Davis" (November 14) which has wowed audiences in Cannes, Telluride and New York. The Guest Artistic Director is Agnès Varda.

For the fifth consecutive year, AFI FEST will offer free tickets to all screenings, but only the Patron Packages will provide reserved seating for the festival's announced galas. More on Bruce Dern below.
