Exclusive: Louisiana Film Fest Unveils 2015 Lineup

The Louisiana International Film Festival’s 2015 program includes world premieres and acclaimed films that have toured the global festival circuit. 

As previously announced, the fest will open with the gala premiere of Paul Feig’s raucous Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy” on May 7. Louisiana will host the American premiere of director Bernard Rose’s (“Candyman”) “Frankenstein,” starring Xavier Samuel as the titular Mary Shelley monster roaming current day Los Angeles, on May 9.

This year Louisiana has added a surfeit of hot Sundance and SXSW titles, including Sundance winners “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” (which closes the fest on May 10) and “Cartel Land,” along with acclaimed docs “City of Gold,” “Best of Enemies,” “Tab Hunter Confidential” and more. Louisiana will also host international arthouse sensations “The Tribe,” “Eden,” “Breathe,” “Eden,” “Timbuktu,” “Manglehorn,” Godard’s “Goodbye to Language 3D” and more. The highly anticipated “Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet” also makes its Louisiana premiere. From Venice 2014, Joshua Oppenheimer’s “Act of Killing” followup “The Look of Silence” comes to the festival as well. Louisiana Film Festival also hosts short film programs, and local issues docs like “Big Charity” about a historical New Orleans building.
