Decent retro list. Have seen all but two.
With the Festival able to focus on new stuff and the increasing cd and streaming access there is a logic to being pure retro although I would prefer some relatively current stuff - and more humor.
 

Thars only two possibilities:Thar is life out there in the universe which is smarter than we are,or we're the most intelligent life in the universe.Either way, it's a mighty sobering thought-WaltKelly

There's another movie or so to be announced. Likely to be something recent.

Every year is different. And, the 'mix' varies as well.

I think there are some very very solid choices here.
