Director Pedro Almodóvar will serve as the guest artistic director of the American Film Institute's 25th AFI Fest in Hollywood in November.

Almodóvar, the Spanish writer-director of such films as "All About My Mother," "Talk to Her" and "Volver," will present a screening of his film "Law of Desire," made 25 years ago. He also will curate a program of films that have inspired his work. Those films and other festival programming are to be announced in October.

The institute's festival is scheduled to run Nov. 3 to 10 at the Chinese Theatre, the Chinese 6 Theatres, the Egyptian Theatre and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Almodóvar's latest film, "The Skin I Live In," starring Antonio Banderas, opens in October.
