The Venice Film Festival announced its lineup today, and it has something for everyone: Hollywood A-listers, Disney Channel darlings, a host of foreign films, a Dragon Tattoo alumna — and that’s just what’s in competition for the Golden Lion trophy.

Notable premieres include Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, which stars Redford as a Weather Underground member exposed by a young reporter (Shia LaBeouf), and Spring Breakers, a film about restaurant-robbing college girls that stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and James Franco. Rachel McAdams shows up twice, first alongside Noomi Rapace in Brian De Palma’s thriller Passion, and also opposite Ben Affleck in Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder.

The 69th festival will run from Aug. 29 to Sept. 8.
