Xavier Dolan’s Canadian foreign language Oscar submission I Killed My Mother (J’ai Tue Ma Mere) will close the festivities.
The roster includes by Alexei Popogrebsky’s Russian drama How I Ended This Summer, (pictured) a triple winner at the recent Berlinale for acting and outstanding artistic contribution, as well as Warwick Thornton’s Australian foreign language submission Samson And Delilah.
Eleven short films will screen this year, and the focus of the New Directors/New Films Classics is French cinema.
