Palm Beach International Film Festival announced its film line-up for the 17th edition: panache is the word.


The Palm BeachInternational Film Festival (PBIFF) announced its highly anticipated film line-up for the 17th edition, April 12-19, 2012, featuring 25 World Premieres, 14 U.S. Premieres and 2 North American Premieres. PBIFF ( will present features, documentaries and short films from the U.S. and around the world, including Netherlands, Spain, Argentina, Tanzania, Italy, France, England,Israel, Thailand, Guinea-Bissau, Portugal, Australia, Canada, Romania andSweden, and will play host to filmmakers, producers, and actors to represent and discuss their films.

"We are excited about this year's program," comments PBIFF Director Randi Emerman, "which reflects our ongoing mission to engage with the community, expanding and enhancing its knowledge of the world through the unique lens of independent film. We encourage people to take this opportunity to enjoy these diversely international stories."

Opening Night kicks off with Robot & Frank, directed by Jake Schreier. Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank's son chooses a different option: against the old man's wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and somewhat heartbreaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places. Robot & Frank features an award-winning cast including Academy Award® nominee Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler and Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon. Robot & Frank is a Samuel Goldwyn Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions film. Opening Night festivities will take place Thursday, April 12 at Muvico Parisian at CityPlace, followed by a party on the luxurious rooftop of Two City Plaza.

The fest will close with "Sassy Pants," directed by Coley Sohn and starringAnna Gunn, Ashley Rickards, Diedrich Bader and Haley Joel Osment. Bethany Pruitt (Ashley Rickards) is valedictorian of her one-student home-school class. Stuck with younger brother Shayne (Martin Spanjers) under their perky but oppressive mother June's (Anna Gunn) thumb, Bethany's only escape is a teen fashion 'zine courtesy of her absentee gay dad. Life at dad Dale's (Diedrich Bader) mobile home is no picnic either. Despite the close bond she forms with his fun, younger boyfriend, Chip (Haley Joel Osment), Dad's self-loathing, alcoholic outbursts weigh heavy on Bethany. She finds solace selling clothes at a cheap, trendy retail chain Jail Bait, but her petty, cutthroat coworkers cause a new set of "real world" navigation problems. When Bethany learns about Fashion Art Technology Institute, aka F.A.T.I., she sees a chance to break free once and for all and forge her own brighter future. How she gets there will redefine her and her family and maybe even update her wardrobe. Closing night will take place at Cobb Theatres in Palm Beach Gardens on Thursday, April 19, followed by the "It's a Wrap" party at 51 Supper Club at Downtown at The Gardens.

Additional highlights of this year's PBIFF include:

  • The ever-popular Weekend of Shorts at the Lakeworth Playhouse (Fri-Sun), as well as the Voices of Local Films which will screen at Mizner Park Cultural Arts Centre on Sunday, April 15
