AFI FEST 2012AFI Fest starts Thursday November 1st at everyone's favorite LA confluence of tourism and indigence: Hollywood and Highland. And for the next week, at the Chinese Theater and the Egyptian, you can see a round-up of the best films 2012 has to offer—big and small, foreign and domestic—entirely for free thanks to Audi (the Germans are subsidizing everyone these days). From Steven Spielberg's Lincoln; to Jacques Audiard's MMA/killer whale movieRust and Bone; to Sean Baker's pornstar-with-a-heart mini-masterpiece, Starlet, the 2012 slate is as diverse and exciting as it was last year. That's why MovieMaker sat down with AFI Festival Director Jacqueline Lyanga to talk about this season's program, and why you have to go.
