The 2019 Burbank International Film Festival

This year’s Burbank International Film Festival takes place September 4th through September 8th, and as usual it’s packing those five days with a feast of screenings, panel discussions, award ceremonies, red=carpet galas, after-parties, and other good stuff.

The better part of 200 films will be shown in two different theaters at the AMC 16 cinema, submitted in 20-odd categories including Feature Film, Documentary, Comedy, Horror, Sci-Fi, and—brand-new this year—LGBTQ Short Film.

Some Festival Highlights

Among the enticing screenings going down at this year’s Burbank International Film Festival are a 30th anniversary showing of the modern comedy classic Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure on Saturday, September 7th at 6 PM, followed up by a Q&A and an after-party. (This comes as a third offering in the franchise, Bill & Ted Face the Music, is in the works, with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter stepping back into the title roles.)

The festival’s Opening Night Premier, taking place on Wednesday, September 4th at 7 PM, is the documentary Stallone, Frank That Is, a profile of Sylvester Stallone’s younger brother, the actor and musician Frank Stallone, directed by Derek Wayne Johnson. Johnson and Stallone will join the documentary’s producers, Chris May and David Polemeni, in a Q&A panel following the screening.

You won’t want to miss the festival afterparties, which include a Saturday night sendup of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror sure to feature plenty of eye-catching costumery. Sunday, September 8th, meanwhile, features the glitzy Closing Night Dinner & Gala Awards, which kicks off with a red-carpet affair and cocktail reception.
