One more festival to add:

In New Hampshire, we're planning the next "Mirthquake" vintage film festival to run from Thursday, Oct. 15 through Sunday, Oct. 18, 2009 in Manchester and nearby towns. (That's the weekend after Columbus Day weekend.) Program still in development but it'll be four days of film, much of it silent and with live music, including a few programs in historic local movie houses.

Extras may include a tour of St. Anselm College in Goffstown, where silent film star Raymond Griffith attended prep school (plus some Raymond Griffith films); maybe a trek to the spot on the Connecticut River where D.W. Griffith filmed the ice floe sequence from 'Way Down East' (and a screening of this classic); and possibly the repremiere of 'The Wishing Seat,' a long-lost 1913 Allan Dwan one-reeler that was discovered this past spring in the attic of the Wilton (NH) Town Hall Theatre, where they've been showing film since 1912.

More to come...

The CINEVENT web site has finally been updated with information on the coming Memorial Day Weekend show.

Not everything is available yet - the online registration is being updated and will be available before long, as will hotel information and more.

The completed film schedule will be posted late February or early March.

Hope to see many of you May 22-25, 2009 in Columbus, OH!

UCLA Film & Television Archive's 14th Festival of Preser

Unread post by Derek B. » Thu Mar 12, 2009 9:33 pm

Bruce has posted info on some individual screenings but I haven't noticed a link to the complete program for UCLA Film & Television Archive's 14th Festival of Preservation that started tonight and runs (off and on) through April 26th. The festival has been biennial in the past but this edition was delayed from last year.

The British Silent Film Festival is still going strong.

A very succesful 15th fest was just held in Cambridge:
