Open Road Films’ boxing pic Bleed For This starring Miles Teller has been selected as the closing-night film at the Austin Film Festival, which runs October 13-20. The fest also said that STX’s Hailee Steinfeld pic The Edge Of Seventeen will serve as the Centerpiece selection after it recently closed the Toronto Film Festival.
Both screenings come ahead of the films’ theatrical rollout. Bleed is due out November 4, and Edge Of Seventeen has set a November 18 release date.
Other additions unveiled today: Jonás Cuarón’s Desierto and road trip drama Youth In Oregon. They join a lineup that already includes Toronto standout La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brandon Glesson, and The Weinstein Company’s Lion.
The fest opens with Jeff Nichols’ Loving.
