Get ready to roll out the red carpet and put on your finest cinephile cap, because the 34th annual Boston Film Festival will return to the Hub Sept. 20-23.

And to ensure you’re properly prepared, we have a rundown of what to expect on the big screen this year.

On a global level, the festival will host the world premiere of "The Passing Parade" and the first U.S. screening of "Grace," which was filmed around Boston. Other works that will be featured throughout the cinematic schedule are "The Etruscan Smile," "Satan & Adam" and a special viewing of the new NBC medical drama "New Amsterdam."

The lineup will also boast a selection of East Coast debuts, including those for: James ­Keach’s latest documentary, "Turning Point"; "Ride," a movie based on the story of a BMX biker that stars actor/rapper Ludacris and Sasha Alexander of "Rizzoli & Isles" fame; and "A Boy Called Sailboat," whose cast features Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons and Jake Busey.

We’re told that all of the longer-format films will be followed by Q&A sessions with the creative forces behind each pic.

Among the actors expected to be in town to participate: Thora Birch and JJ Feild from "The Etruscan Smile;" Katie Cassidy, Debby Ryan and Tate Donovan from "Grace"; Busey and Miranda Skerman from "A Boy Called Sailboat;" Alexander from "Ride;" as well as Freema Agyeman, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine from "New Amsterdam," and Hal Ozsan and Graham Sibley from "The Passing Parade."

The complete schedule is still forthcoming but once it’s finalized, it, along with ticketing information, will be found on the Boston Film Festival’s website.
