The Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) launches on Nov. 5 and runs through Nov. 15. Join us for a globe-circling mission that explores the far corners of the cinematic universe. SLIFF will screen an unprecedented 447 films: 97 narrative features, 86 documentary features, and 264 shorts. The fest also will feature seven special-event programs, including two free master classes and the closing-night party.
Among the highlights of this year’s fest, held Nov. 5-15, is a trio of programs featuring actor, writer and director Alex Winter, a former St. Louisan who receives the fest’s annual Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis Award. SLIFF blasts off with Winter’s documentary “Deep Web” on Nov. 5, and he’ll also accompany screenings of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” (on Nov. 6) and “Downloaded” (on Nov. 7).
