On May 16, the fest will spend an afternoon with Laura Dern, screening the YA adaptation "The Fault in Our Stars," starring Shailene Woodley, with costar Dern in attendance. The next night, May 17, David Lynch's inimitable Palme d'Or winner "Wild at Heart," starring Dern and Nicolas Cage, will screen after an onstage interview surveying her career.

On May 19, SIFF will screen Biyi Bandele's Nigeria-set "Half of a Yellow Sun" in honor of star Chiwetel Ejiofor, who got his start in Steven Spielberg's 1997 "Amistad" and was Oscar-nominated earlier this year for "12 Years a Slave." Following the screening there will be an onstage interview with film clips from Ejiofor's career and an audience Q&A. The fest will also present Ejiofor's 2005 sci-fi starrer "Serenity," from Joss Whedon.

It was previously announced that "12 Years a Slave" scribe John Ridley's latest directorial effort, a Jimi Hendrix biopic, will open the fest.
