More than 60 films will be screened during the second annual event, taking place Sept. 22-25.

Dolphin Tale has been tapped as the opening film for the 2nd annual 3D Film Festival, which takes place Sept. 22-25 at the Los Angeles Film School.

The Warner Bros.-Alcon Entertainment film is inspired by the true story of Winter, a dolphin who lost her tail but was saved through the efforts of a group of people and the invention of a prosthetic tail. Dolphin Tale opens in theaters Friday, Sept. 23 and stars Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Morgan Freeman and Nathan Gamble.

A filmmaker Q&A will follow the screening.

The festival also unveiled its lineup, with more than 60 films, including shorts, music videos and documentaries, being screened. Kung Fu Panda 2, Green Lantern, Ocean Voyagers 3D and Nothing to My Name are just some of the titles that will be shown to audiences.

Additionally, the festival will launch 3D Music Festival, which will take place daily at the Avalon and feature live performances with DJs and concert film screenings.

The festival wraps up with Disclosure Concert, a series of 3D music performances inspired by the work of Dr. Steven Greer. A 3D Light Parade will also take place.

The 3D Film Festival is produced by The Dream Factory.
