This year, SIFF will screen 440 films: 198 features (plus 4 secret films), 60 documentaries, 14 archival films, and 168 shorts, representing 83 countries. The films include 44 World premieres (20 features, 24 shorts), 30 North American premieres (22 features, 8 shorts), and 14 US premieres (8 features, 6 shorts); the Shorts Competition section has yet to be announced.

The festival opens with Hendrix biopic “JIMI: All Is By My Side,” starring Outkast's André Benjamin and written and directed by “12 Years a Slave” Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley; and closes with Charlie McDowell's twisted sci-fi romantic dramedy “The One I Love,” starring Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass as a couple who get a strange form of marriage therapy when they spend a weekend together at a vacation home.
