The last major film festival of the year is AFI FEST 2015 presented by Audi, and the event has just revealed 10 more titles that will join “By the Sea,” “The Big Short,” “Krisha” and more at the November event.

AFI FEST had previously announced one of their Centerpiece Galas — the Will Smith-starring “Concussion” — and now the two films joining the potential awards player are the Chilean miner drama “The 33,” starring Antonia Banderas, Juliette Binoche and Rodrigo Santoro, and the latest Michael Moore documentary, “Where to Invade Next.” AFI will mark the third festival Moore’s crowdpleaser hits after well-received screenings at both TIFF and NYFF.

Additionally, AFI will be screening some of the year’s most acclaimed festival titles in its Special Screenings section. The group includes “45 Years,” “Anomalisa,” “Carol,” “Last Days in the Desert,” “The Lobster,” “Macbeth” and “Queen of the Desert.” AFI FEST 2015 takes place November 5-12.
