The Seattle International Film Festival has set its massive full lineup for this year's 39th Annual event, including the North American Premiere of Sofia Coppola's Un Certain Regard entry "The Bling Ring," which has been set as the closing night film for the festival. This year's festival will include 18 world premieres, 38 North American premieres, and 6 US premieres, in a lineup of 447 features and 175 short films.

As previously announced, Joss Whedon's Shakespeare adaptation "Much Ado About Nothing," will open the festival, with other highlights including Jim Rash's Steve Carell vehicle "The Way, Way Back," David Gordon Green's "Prince Avalanche," David Lowery's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," and Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha," among many other recent festival favorites.

"My first knowledge of film festivals came from seeing astonishing and extraordinary films from the likes of Ridley Scott, Peter Greenaway, Lars von Trier and Bernardo Bertolucci. Today, those formative experiences drive my passion for finding the next wave of films from masters and undiscovered talent," said SIFF Artistic and Co-Director Carl Spence. "From the launch of our inaugural African Pictures program, to our Closing Night Gala, the American debut of Sofia Coppola’s 'The Bling Ring,' to Disney-Pixar’s 'Monsters University,' to Peter Greenaway’s 'Goltzius' and the Pelican Company, the 39th edition of the Festival will unleash an incredibly rich and diverse array of fantastic programming.”

Actor Kyle MacLachlan ("Blue Velvet," "Twin Peaks") will receive this year's Outstanding Achievement in Acting Award, and will be in attendance for an audience Q&A following a screening of David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" pilot episode. Director Peter Greenaway will be the festival's other special guest, holding a lecture following a screening of his film"Goltzius and the Pelican Company."

“This is my first year at SIFF as Managing Director, however I have been involved with the organization for many, many years – from participating as a sponsor, to covering as a reporter, to serving as a volunteer," said SIFF Managing Director Mary Bacarella. "I’m overjoyed to kick off my tenure as Managing Director with such an exciting Festival lineup; it’s going to be a spectacular 25 days of celebrating the world of film."
