Organizers of the Syracuse International Film Festival looked to homegrown talent to headline this year's event.

Saturday night at the Palace Theatre, the festival will present "Call Me Lucky," Syracuse native Bobcat Goldthwait's critically praised documentary about comedian Barry Crimmins, formerly of Skaneateles. Following the 9:30 p.m. screening will be a Q-and-A with Goldthwait and Crimmins.
