The American Film Institute Festival will take place virtually this year. The opening night is scheduled to launch online on Thursday, October 15. It is scheduled to run from October 15-22, 2020. This will be the 34th year of the AFI Fest.
The world premiere and opening film is going to be the Amazon Original I’m Your Woman. The film stars Rachel Brosnahan. The synopsis of the film is as follows:
Suburban housewife Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with the job of keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake), and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld. A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I’M YOUR WOMAN is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood, family and what it takes to claim your life as your own.
Passes will be available at FEST.AFI.com on September 28. Individual tickets will be available for purchase for AFI members and for the general public on October 7.
AFI FEST 2020 will take place online October 15-22, 2020. The full festival lineup and schedule will be unveiled in October.
