The fifth Glasgow Film Festival will run from February 12-22, opening with the UK premiere of Armando Iannucci's political satire In The Loop starring Tom Hollander, James Gandolfini and Peter Capaldi.
Closing the festival is the romantic comedy Last Chance Harvey co-starring Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.
Other selections include Cannes Palme D'Or winner The Class; Paolo Sorrentino's Il Divo; Jan Troell's Golden Globe nominee Everlasting Moments; Niels Arden Oplev's Worlds Apart; Jerzy Skolimowski's comeback Four Nights With Anna; and the UK premiere of Guillermo Arriaga's The Burning Plain with Charlize Theron.
The festival will screen new work from Scottish filmmakers and Scottish production companies including Richard Jobson's thriller New Town Killers, Murray Grigor's documentary Infinite Space and the world premiere of Jim Hickey's horror romp The Dungeon Moor Killings.
Other highlights include a retrospective devoted to Audrey Hepburn. The festival will continue its traditional links with Fright Fest and the short film specialist organisation The Magic Lantern.
The Festival's new music section includes the documentary Anvil! followed by a gig from Canadian metal music-makers and a youth film festival.
Speaking to ScreenDaily, festival co-director Allison Gardner said 'We're delighted with the calibre of films, this year the standard is very high. The opening gala is going to be a great start to the festival.'
Explaining the choice of Audrey Hepburn for the retrospective, Gardner said, 'She would have been 80 in 2009 and she is an enduring icon. I think for a new generation she is very modern and her sense of style and appeal really does endure.'
American titles will include the UK premiere of Marley & Me; Lance Hammer's award-winning Ballast; Sean Baker's The Prince Of Broadway; Marc Abraham's Flash Of Genius with Greg Kinnear; Brian Hecker's Bart Got A Room; and Charlie Levi's Childless starring Barbara Hershey and Joe Mantegna.
Archive screenings include a 25th anniversary salute to Bill Forsyth's Comfort And Joy which will be attended by star Bill Paterson and an 80th anniversary screening of The Divine Lady which won a Best Director Oscar for Glasgow-born Frank Lloyd.
