The 48th Chicago International Film Festival will kick off on Oct. 11 and run through Oct. 25.

Among the films that will be featured is action-comedy Stand Up Guys, which was produced by Chicago native Tom Rosenberg. The film's stars -- Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Juliana Margulies, Fisher Stevens - will attend the red-carpet gala to be held in the Windy City.

The festival will close with Chicago-born Robert Zemeckis' mystery thriller Flight, which stars Denzel Washington as a pilot who miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe.
