PanARMENIAN.Net - The Beijing International Film Festival which gets underway later this week (April 16-23, 2014) has completed its line-up with additional restored and classic movies and contemporary world cinema choices, according to Variety.

The additions take to 282 the total number of films set to screen and 176 the number that will play in its Beijing Film Panorama.

Other titles include “Laborer’s Love,” “New Women,” “Spring in a Small Town,” and “Myriads of Lights.”

The festival has added a screening of “Giant,” bringing to three its selection of James Dean classics, alongside the previously announced “Rebel Without A Cause” and “East of Eden.” Also screening in the same ‘Classical Retrospective’ section is a trio of Guiseppe Tornatore titles “The Legend of 1900,” “Malena” and “Cinema Paradiso.”

The 34-title ‘Global View’ section includes Korean detective thriller “Cold Eyes,” India’s foreign-language Oscar-nominee “The Good Road”, Dutch prison documentary “Unit7,” and Norwegian-made road movie “Before Snowfall.”
