San Diego Film Festival’s Official 2014 Feature Film Lineup

San Diego Film Festival 2014 Official Feature Film Lineup

Looking to make a name for itself in the festival circuit, the San Diego Film Festival has lined up some solid feature length films for its lucky thirteenth year. Opening with Jean-Marc Vallée’s Wild, his follow up to the highly celebrated Dallas Buyers Club, this year’s SDFF boasts a slew of anticipated movies that will be releasing later this year. See the full lineup after the break.

Alongside Wild, other big studio features premiering in the US at SDFF includes Laggies, The Good Lie, The Imitation Game, and The Equalizer. And closing the festival will be George Wolfe’s You’re Not You starring Ali Larter, Emmy Rossum, Hilary Swank, and Josh Duhamel. These more well-known features are a big step up from last year’s lineup and I wouldn’t be surprised if more filmmakers consider San Diego to submit their films in 2015.

Tonya Mantooth, Vice President and Director of Programming, San Diego Film Festival, had a few words about the upcoming festival:

“The San Diego Film Festival will celebrate the year’s best independent cinema from emerging and established filmmakers showcasing their latest works to some of Hollywood’s most buzz-worthy award season releases. We’ve curated a wide selection of films that we hope movie lovers of all genres will enjoy.”

Here are the 25 narrative feature length films that will be vying for the Filmmaker Award, Audience Award, and Best International Feature:

I, myself, am looking forward to Wild, Laggies, and You’re Not You, but I have also heard Time Lapse will be a great one to catch if you can’t gain tickets for the bigger features.

The 2014 San Diego Film Festival will hit America’s Finest City from September 24-28 at the Reading Theater in downtown Gaslamp and The ArcLight Cinemas in La Jolla, CA.
