The Nantucket Film Festival announced the feature film lineup for its 24th annual event on Tuesday — and there are some big names on the list.

The festival will screen Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle’s “Yesterday’’ on opening night, June 19, and will feature Lulu Wang’s “The Farewell’’ (with “Crazy Rich Asians’’ star Awkwafina) as the centerpiece film.

Other films in the lineup include “Toy Story 4,’’ “Vita & Virginia,’’ “One Child Nation,’’ and “Ophelia,’’ among other movies.

“NFF’s 2019 program continues our tradition of diverse and entertaining content for the whole community,’’ said Basil Tsiokos, the Nantucket Film Festival Film Program Director.


“From musicals and period dramas to comedies and thought-provoking documentaries, there is a wide range of options for all audiences. This is the moment we look forward to each year, sharing an exciting new slate of films highlighting strong screenwriting and storytelling.’’

The festival takes place from June 19 to 24 on Nantucket.
