It's a lot to digest. To help you sort it all out, we've compiled this film-fest buddy. Inside you'll find reviews of most of the scheduled films, stories spotlighting a few particularly noteworthy productions, and a handy festival schedule, suitable for pulling out, folding up, and carrying along for periodic consultation. You'll also find a chance to win one of four all-access passes (look to the right for details), giving you the run of the festival and the riches therein. And if you want to take a cell phone, well, that's fine by us. Just remember to turn it off when the movie starts, OK?
