Interviews And Stuff Going On For This Year’s Virtual Classic Film Festival

Recommended Posts

This is so exciting that this year’s Virtual Classic Film Festival will actually take place right here on TCM itself again and on HBO Max this year.  Two venues the virtual way right?  I’ve checked out the TCM section on HBO Max/the HBO Max app.  So I’m planning ahead.  Now.  Will different interviews and events actually be going on at different times?  Like will some be presented right here on TCM and others on HBO Max or will it all be going on both places at the same time?  This is so I know where and when to catch everything.  So I don’t miss a minute of this.  Thank you.

David, here is an excerpt from the TCM FILM FESTIVAL 2021 PRESS RELEASE:

”Below is a first look at what fans can expect at the upcoming festival, with more talent and special events to be announced closer to Opening Night:
• The Masters: Iconic directors, including Rob Reiner and Mira Nair, will introduce one of their seminal films and share their personal recollections of the production.
• Tributes: The Festival recognizes a select group of individuals, including Danny Glover and Ali MacGraw, whose careers have left a lasting impact on cinema, including exclusive conversations celebrating the honoree.
• Guest Programmers: Tastemakers from different fields of expertise select and introduce their favorite films.
• Discoveries: Films, including Antwone Fisher (2002) and They Won’t Believe Me (1947), that have been forgotten or overlooked by time or changing cultural tastes that deserve to be rediscovered.
• Special Collections: Curated collections of films highlighting special themes that spotlight specific genres, eras, technical expertise, or cultures, including a focus on the L.A. Rebellion.
• Essentials: Timeless classics that have shaped generations, both past and present, and continue to influence filmmaking and culture today.
• Special Presentations: Unique presentations created by notable filmmakers and film experts which illuminate little-known and rarely seen film history.”


David, Many of the special events, panels and interviews will be on HBO Max.

Great.  Thank you so much.  I really appreciate it.  This will be great.  Just like last year.  It was quite a really amazing experience from home.  I just really loved a whole lot.


Thanks again.  See you all there the virtual way.  I’m really looking forward to it a whole lot.

I know.  I was actually just on the homepage reading all about it again and I’m actually making plans right now.  I’m so excited.  I can’t wait.  Now.  I’m sure details will be announced as it gets closer and closer.  But will all the interviews.  Discussions.  Panels and all that all be going on on HBO Max at the same time as the Film Festival movies and all that is here on TCM itself?
