Sept. 17--"Ain't Them Bodies Saints," the buzzed-about feature debut by Waukesha native David Lowery, has been added as a late starter to the lineup of the 2013 Milwaukee Film Festival.

The movie, which stars Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster, will have a one-night-only screening at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 9 at the Oriental Theatre, 2230 N. Farwell Ave. Tickets are on sale through the film festival box office.

Lowery, who had a short film in the 2011 festival, also will appear at the screening -- one of the many filmmakers who'll be in attendance at the festival. Other performers and filmmakers in attendance announced Tuesday include:

Steve Hoover, writer-director of the documentary "Blood Brother," the festival's closing-night film, will be at the 7:30 p.m. Oct. 10 screening.

The members of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, subjects of the music documentary "Brothers Hypnotic," will appear at the festival's opening-night party at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at Discovery World, and at the 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 screening at the Oriental Theatre.

Producer-directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin will be on hand for their documentary on the political tumult in Madison, "Citizen Koch," at 4:45 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Downer Theatre.

Director and Milwaukee native George Tillman Jr., who is the focus of a tribute at the festival, will be at the screening of his latest film "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," along with its two young stars, Ethan Dizon and Skylan Brooks.

The 2013 Milwaukee Film Festival run from Sept. 26 through Oct. 10. For tickets and information, go to www.mkefilm.org.
