The St Louis Post-Dispatch offers their look at the Best of the Fest: One hundred thirty feature films. Forty countries. Ten days.
The 18th annual St. Louis International Film Festival runs through Nov. 22 at the Tivoli, Hi-Pointe and Plaza Frontenac theaters, the St. Louis Art Museum, Webster University and Washington University, and it’s all about choices.
To guide you, the organizers from Cinema St. Louis have grouped the lineup into more than 30 geographic and genre “sidebars.”
Are you hot for Hollywood? The studios are previewing at least eight of their big year-end releases, including three probable best-picture finalists: “Precious,” “An Education” and the St. Louis-lensed “Up in the Air.”
Are you dedicated to documentaries? There are more than 40 of them. Mad about music? There’s an app for that. Wild about Westerns, sentimental for silents, fond of the French? Bienvenue. There’s even a sidebar devoted to Bosnian cinema.
