Re: Disney Swallows 20th Century Fox

Donald; Silents; Brooksie and everybody else you are absolutely right about copyrights. Unfortunately most of the Warner rights are not being utilised, just look at Sky and TCM in Europe. Fox archive rights are apparently different. Not many have been signed away for long periods or at all. So Disne...

Re: Disney Swallows 20th Century Fox

With this amalgamation of Disney and Fox, I am hoping that the new management will make better use of Fox and Disney archives. Perhaps create a new TCM like channel which would be broadcast around the world unlike TCM itself. Create just one channel for everybody. This is all technically possible ju...

Re: Are communism-era films worth preserving?

Yes they definitely are. Several generations later, history teachers will be explaining Nazi and Communist eras to youngsters who will ask them to provide them with a proof. These films, be they documentary films or feature films will provide that much needed proof.

Re: Cinecon Dinner

May I offer an observation in regard to the Cinecon Dinner. If one looks at the Cinecon schedule most screenings are very tightly timed and overruns are usual. As a result dinner breaks are not really suitable for a proper relaxed dinner. I therefore suggest 1st September and make it a proper lunch ...

Re: Cinecon Dinner

This is my first reply on NitrateVille forum despite being a lurker for a number of years. As I am coming this year to Cinecon I was wondering whether my wife and I can join you at the Cinecon dinner.
