Following early word of four major feature films last month, organizers with the Twin Cities Film Fest announced Wednesday the complete schedule for the event, set for Oct. 17-26 in St. Louis Park.

All films will screen at the ShowPlace ICON Theatres at the Shops at West End.

Oscar-winning writer and director Alexander Payne's black-and-white road drama, "Nebraska" -- starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte -- will be the TCFF's opening night film Oct. 17.

Also screening at the festival is the Paul Potts/"Britain's Got Talent" music tale "One Chance" (Oct. 24); the historical drama "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" (Oct. 25); and Meryl Streep-Julia Roberts drama "August: Osage County" (Oct. 26).

Other features set to play at the festival include the comedy "Last Vegas" (Oct. 26), starring Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline; and the indie drama "We Are What We Are" (Oct. 19).

Among the documentary films screening at the festival is "The Armstrong Lie" (Oct. 22), a film by Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney about controversial cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The TCFF will also feature 20 world premieres of locally-produced features and short films, including the critically acclaimed comedy drama "Pollywogs," shot in the northern part of Minnesota by Virginia native Karl Jacob; and "Delivery," a horror film from Woodbury natives Adam Schindler and Brian Netto that's found success on the film festival circuit.
