AFI Fest’s Special Screenings are: “The Central Park Live”; “Ginger and Rosa,” which is attracting a lot of attention for Elle Fanning’s acclaimed performance; the gonzo Cannes hit “Holy Motors”; Juan Antonio tsunami epic “The Impossible”; Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut “Quartet”; “Room 237,” a buzzed about documentary that delves into theories surrounding “The Shining”; David O. Russell’s Oscar front-runner “Silver Linings Playbook; and “West of Memphis.”
