It’s that time of year again! TCM summons Classic Movie Fandom to Hollywood for its Annual Cinematic Celebration..
Well, what can I say — except that I can hardly contain my excitement! Not a minute after arriving home from the 2013 TCM Film Festival last April, I was already hankering to make my plans for the 2014 Festival! That said, today was a very happy day indeed…
Turner Classic Movies announced today that the 2014 TCM Film Festival is set for April 10-13, marking the 5th consecutive year of the event and coinciding with the 20th anniversary of TCM as a leading authority in classic film.
The Festival’s central theme will be Family in the Movies: The Ties that Bind and will celebrate families of all types — “big and small, happy and imperfect, musical and dramatic”, as well as “the first families of Hollywood and the filmmaking dynasties that have entertained generations.”
Passes will go on sale in November through the TCM Classic Film Festival website at TCM.com, and will range in price from $249 to $1,599 for various levels of access to screenings and events. TCM’s beloved host and film historian, Robert Osborne, will officially host the festival with TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz introducing various events. The historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel will serve as the festival’s official hotel and headquarters, with screenings and events held at the TCL Chinese Theater, the Chinese 6 Theaters, and the Egyptian Theatre.
