2023 American Film Festival (AFF): “Dream Scenario” & “Memory” Bookend Fest / Adele Romanski & Alex Ross Perry Honored

2023 American Film Festival (AFF): “Dream Scenario” & “Memory” Bookend Fest / Adele Romanski & Alex Ross Perry Honored

The American Film Festival (AFF) in Wrocław have unveiled the line-up for their upcoming 14th edition (November 7th to 12th) and we find Kristoffer Borgli’s Dream Scenario opening the fest (the film had its world preem in the Platform section at TIFF) and Michel Franco‘s Venice-winning Memory closes the festival. Along with Deauville as one of the premium stops showcasing American indie film outside of North America, this year’s competition section (Spectrum) will showcase films such as Savanah Leaf’s Earth Mama, Raven Jackson’s All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, Lucy Kerr’s Family Portrait, Shane Atkinson’s LaRoy and Monica Sorelle’s Mountains. From Venice, we’ll also get premieres for Robert Kolodny’s The Featherweight and the Ross Bros.’ Gasoline Rainbow. Adele Romanski and Alex Ross Perry will receive the Indie Star Award – and audiences will get to sample their film output in retrospectives of their works. IONCINEMA.com will be on hand to cover the fest and we’ll be exploring the eight works included in the US in Progress – last year’s top project LaRoy would premiere at Tribeca and then win at last month’s Deauville.
