AFI announced today that the World Premiere of Apple Original film SELENA GOMEZ: MY MIND AND ME will open the 36th edition of AFI FEST on Wednesday, November 2.

Helmed by Alek Keshishian, who made his groundbreaking directorial debut with the seminal documentary MADONNA: TRUTH OR DARE, SELENA GOMEZ: MY MIND AND ME chronicles Emmy® and Grammy® nominee Selena Gomez’s journey from the heights of unimaginable superstardom through the lows of a very personal crisis and back again.

“I had no interest in making a traditional pop doc,” says Keshishian. “I wanted to show something more authentic and Selena did, too. She has a raw vulnerability that captured me… I had no idea then that it would become a six-year labor of love.”

“AFI is proud to launch AFI FEST 2022 with SELENA GOMEZ: MY MIND AND ME, a film as profoundly powerful as it is personal,” said Bob Gazzale, AFI President and CEO. “Selena is a global force in art and entertainment, and we are honored to partner with her, Alek and Apple to shine a light upon her journey in this beautifully crafted celebration of optimism, vulnerability and hopefulness.”

The documentary is an Apple Original Film, produced by Interscope Films and Lighthouse Management & Media.

AFI FEST 2022 will take place exclusively in person in Los Angeles from November 2-6.

Tickets and passes to AFI FEST 2022 will be available in October on
