AFI Fest 2014 Recap

Still Alice Julianne Moore

AFI Fest, a free film festival put on by the American Film Institute, featured premieres of big movies like The Gambler, American Sniper, Selma and A Most Violent Year, as well as gala presentations of The Homesman, Foxcatcher and Inherent Vice. They also presented a program of film discoveries and festival favorites. 

In between the big galas and full reviews, I put my film festival cap back on and went on the hunt for some quality cinema. I’ve recapped my discoveries in the slideshow below, in alphabetical order. There were some real breakthrough films, a few catchups from SXSW and TIFF, and a couple WTFs that you’d probably only see at a film festival.
