One hundred eighty-eight films in total will play across the festival, from 81 countries. The festival will include seven world premieres, six North American and 33 U.S. premieres.

"It's an extraordinary pleasure to be sharing this year's festival lineup with the world, my first as Artistic Director,” PSIFF Artistic Director Lili Rodriguez said in a statement of the lineup. “In tradition with previous years, we've looked back at an excellent year of international cinema and cherry-picked some of the best in the circuit, as well as some undiscovered gems. From award-winners and hopefuls to smaller, independent stories that stick with you, this year's lineup showcases an exciting group of diverse and powerful voices."

The event, which has always highlighted international film, will enlist a jury of international film critics to choose honorees for the FIPRESCI Award for best foreign language film of the year, best actor, best actress and best screenplay.
