L'Etrange 2013: 17 Reasons To Be Excited About This Year's Fest

Paris' much loved L'Etrange Festival is only days away. Those who've been impatiently waiting (as well they should) since last year's effusive coverage, and those besot with intrigue after having just recently learned of it can both rest easy - things kick off anew Thursday, September 5th. 

And what a kickoff it will be! Director Jeremy Saulnier will be on the hand for opening night screenings of his films Murder Party and Blue Ruin, the latter of which recently premiered to considerable acclaim at Cannes. So will Korean star Ryoo Seung-beom to present his recent hit The Agent (AKA The Berlin File). And that's just opening night.

The ten days of L'Etrange offer a real king's bounty for genre fans, with special events, first look screening and retrospectives galore. Check the gallery below for but a taste of what L'Etrange has in store. Our coverage starts this week.
