AFI’s 22nd annual European Union Film Showcase opens tonight with Mammoth, Swedish writer-director Lukas Moodysson‘s first English-language feature starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Michelle Williams.

The festival runs through Nov. 24 with centerpiece screenings including The Young Victoria, a period romance from Gosford Park writer Julian Fellowes with Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a Terry Gilliam film already well-known for being Heath Ledger‘s final project.
