The 24th Philadelphia Film Festival is shaping up to be quite the tribute to Charlie Kaufman. Not only will the writer-director screen his latest existential comedy-drama, “Anomalisa,” on Opening Night and receive the festival’s Artistic Achievement Award, he will also be the subject of a retrospective at the Prince Theater, which will include all six titles from Kaufman’s filmography, including “Adaptation,” “Being John Malkovich,” “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Human Nature” and “Synecdoche, New York.”

Along with Kaufman and his “Anomalisa” co-director Duke Johnson, the festival is set to present a strong roster of special guests, including Todd Haynes, Gaspar Noé and Michael Moore. Below is the full line-up of guests scheduled to attend the festival. All information is subject to change.
