The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its fall programming lineup this week for both Los Angeles and New York. A full schedule and tickets for the screenings can be found here: oscars.org/events. The fall slate will highlight two new programming series. The Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library created a new speaker series, Words on Film, that invites writers and filmmakers to discuss their work and their creative and research processes with the public in a casual, dynamic way. In addition, the Academy presents the inaugural Robert Osborne Celebration of Classic Film, a new series funded by the Robert Osborne Estate designed to return classic films to the big screen for new audiences.

Muriel’s Wedding 25th Anniversary – September 13 – 7:30 p.m. PT
Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Beverly Hills, with special guest Toni Collette

A cult favorite of 1990s independent cinema, this film helped launch Toni Collette’s international career. Alongside Rachel Griffiths, she expertly fronts this revisionist Cinderella story in which two women find each other despite their struggles with gender, class and disability. Ultimately, Muriel’s Wedding is an emphatic celebration of pop music and female friendship, telling a widely accessible story about learning to love yourself in a world that assigns value based on how well you fit into a mold.
