Oh, hell yes. Thank you, Virginia Film Festival.

One of cinema's most provocative and challenging filmmakers, Werner Herzog -- as well as one of the great comedic actors, Virginia-native Danny McBride, are headlining this year's Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville.

The 29th annual Virginia Film Festival will take place from Nov. 3-6 at venues throughout Charlottesville. The VFF’s opening night film for this year will be announced by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe in a special event at the Executive Richmond on Thursday.

Also on the bill are Richmond-born actress Shirley MacLaine and Liv Ullman.

Tickets go on sale this Friday Sept. 30. To learn more, visit www.virginiafilmfestival.org.

Some other highlights of the fest include Thursday's opening night film, "Loving" with director Jeff Nichols and the premiere of the Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone musical, "La La Land" on Sunday night. You can see the full line-up and schedule at the fest website. Trust me, hotels are hard to find now.
