The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, which will be held Oct. 9-18, has announced more screenings planned for this year's event, including the closing night's lineup. The final weekend will feature the world premiere of ESPN's "The Prince of Pennsylvania," a nonfiction take on the subject of last year's award-winning "Foxcatcher," ass well as the "The Great Alone," about the Alaskan Iditarod race. "Both the human and canine stars," the festival reports, "will be in attendance." Closing night of the festival will include a screening of SXSW audience award-winner "Made In Japan," starring Tomi Fujiyama, "Japan's First Lady of Country Music." Fujiyama will be on hand to attend the screening and perform at the festival's celebration party on the night of Oct. 17.

The opening night lineup was announced earlier this month. Visit their website for more info.
