The 4th Annual Key West Film Festival has announced its official 2015 lineup, including opening night film “Spotlight,” starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Michael Keaton. As part of the festival’s Critics’ Choice series, Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday will host a Q&A for Spotlight with Sacha Pfeiffer and Michael Rezendes, two of the journalists who’s real life work is featured in the film.

The Saturday night Spotlight film will be Todd Haynes’ Cannes-winning “Carol,” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. The romance film has dominated the fall festival circuit, playing at nearly all the major and regional film festivals. Hornaday will join Indiewire’s own Eric Kohn, also participating in the Critic’s Choice program, to host a discussion following “Carol.”

The festival will also host a 20th anniversary screening of Paul Verhoeven’s “Showgirls,” in which the filmmaker will attend and participate in a conversation with film critic and author Adam Nayman.
