AFI FEST, celebrating it's 25th edition as a showcase of the most highly anticipated films and performances of the year, today announced its line-up of conversations, presentations and digital alliances. Adding depth and discussion to its screenings schedule, AFI FEST offers three exceptional Conversations and Presentations with Hollywood's leading talent and visionaries as well as exciting, cutting-edge digital initiatives.

EDGAR), Evan Rachel Wood (THE IDES OF MARCH) and Anton Yelchin (LIKE CRAZY) will engage in a lively discussion with The Los Angeles Times' Amy Kaufman on life in the industry and being thrust into awards competition.

In alliance with AFI FEST, Variety will present the Film Technology Summit on November 7 and the Future of Film Summit on November 8. The conferences will bring together an exclusive group of industry thought-leaders to discuss the latest innovations in entertainment and the current state of the industry.
