A TCMFF 2018 Announcement
March 24, 2018
I am very proud and honored to announce that I will be attending the 9th Annual TCM Classic Film Festival as credentialed media!
This is the second year in a row that I’ve secured a media pass for the festival, and I could not be more thrilled. While I’ve covered the event each of the four years I’ve maintained this blog, being given an official media pass throws me in to overachiever mode, which means I’ve already started lining up tweets and other content for the fest. (Yes, I got straight to work on a Friday night, a few hours after I recevied the news.) The past two years I also interviewed stars and guests on the red carpet – once as a TCMFF Social Producer and once as media – and I’m crossing my fingers I’ll have that opportunity again this April!
This is an approximation of me prepping for TCMFF. Yes, I still use books to research.
TCMFF runs from April 26-29 this year. The theme, “Powerful Words: The Page Onscreen,” celebrates “the foundation of great film: the written word.” Of the pictures already announced, I’m most excited for Finishing School (1934), Girls About Town (1931), None Shall Escape (1944), Spellbound (1945), Stage Door (1937), and Windjammer: The Voyage of Christian Radich (1958), an assortment of titles loosely related to the theme that fall into my favorite festival categories: pre-Codes, nitrate, rarities, and special guests.
I always look forward to TCMFF's key art each year!
Hopefully, TCMFF's complete line-up should be live within two weeks or so; whenever it drops, the entire classic film community will without a doubt be thrown into a scheduling frenzy, and you can expect my picks soon thereafter. In the meantime, look out for my Noir City 20 preview in the next week or two, as I’ll be attending that 10-night long celebration in less than three weeks. This April is certainly shaping up to be a busy month for classic film fans.
Stay tuned for more festival news soon!
