This includes entries from Takashi Miike and Alexandre O. Philippe. J.K. Simmons and Andrea Riseborough will be appearing in new films and there is even a documentary about the connection between David Lynch and The Wizard of Oz.
Fantasia has its roots in Asian cinema. This year groundbreaking Hong Kong filmmaker John Woo will be honored with a Career Achievement Award. With a resume that includes A Better Tomorrow and The Killer along with a unique style, Woo is one of the most influential directors of all time
