Getcha popcorn ready.

From the press release:

Opening Night launches the festival with Billy Bates, a film by Julie Pacino, Al Pacino’s daughter, and original music by Grammy Award winner Moby. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer will be presenting the winner of a film contest she recently hosted with her fan club, as will the screening of My Better Half by 16 year old Olivia deLaurentis, who wrote, directed, edited and acted in her groundbreaking film and is daughter of iconic 80’s actress Diane Franklin (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Better Off Dead) who will be attending.
