The genre film festival Beyond Fest is getting a hefty dose of Cronenberg. It was announced today that Beyond Fest will be hosting Cronenberg with Cronenberg: A Retrospective of the New Flesh, which is a 13-film celebration of filmmaker David Cronenberg’s career. For the first time in a decade, Cronenberg will return to Los Angeles to be in attendance for three of the screenings, joined by actors, collaborators, and guest moderators.

The Cronenberg-attended screenings are as follows. First there’s a screening of Dead Ringers on September 29th, where Cronenberg will be joined by composer Howard Shore with director Mick Garris moderating. Then on September 30th, Cronenberg will be joined by Shore again and Geena Davis for back-to-back screenings of The Fly and Naked Lunch. Then on October 1st, Cronenberg will be in attendance for a double bill of Videodrome and Existenz, and he’ll be joined by Debbie Harry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Shore once again with director Leigh Whannell moderating the Q&A between the two films.

Check out the full list of Cronenberg films screening at the festival below, which will all be screened in 35mm. For more on Beyond Fest, click here.
