Twenty feet from Stardom

The lineup for the 30th Miami International Film Festival, running March 1-10, has been announced. Presented by Miami Dade College, the festival will feature 117 features and 12 shorts from some 41 countries. "Twenty Feet From Stardom," which recently opened the Sundance Film Festival, will have the same honors for the Miami event. The festival will close with another documentary, "Venus and Serena," about the tennis champion Williams sisters. This is the first time the fest has been bookended with documentaries.

Also on offer at the fest is Pablo Larrain's Oscar-nominated "No," Carlos Reygadas' Cannes entry "Post Tenebras Lux," Thomas Vinterberg's "The Hunt," the premiere of River Phoenix's "Dark Blood" and a slew of other domestic and foreign films.

Career Achievement tributes will be given for Fernando Trueba (he'll present "The Artist and the Model") and Lasse Hallström (she'll share "The Hypnotist").

A month-long retrospective of the festival's earlier years will usher in the 30th anniversary edition. Exec director Jaie Laplante says, “An anniversary year is an opportunity to look at where you’ve been and where you’re going. We didn’t want to create any extra pressure on the event itself, so that’s why we came up with the retrospective idea. When this year’s festival opens, we’ve already celebrated the past in some wonderful ways.”
