Most film festivals seek to showcase best of the up-and-coming. Not Turner Classic Movies.
Instead, at its first ever Classic Film Festival, the television network will show newly restored films and its own documentary on old Hollywood next year. With Vanity Fair as its partner and The Hollywood Reporter’s Robert Osborne as its host, Turner Classic Movies is enlisting a number of actors, actresses, directors and producers to introduce to more than 50 screenings, as they air at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre and other landmarks.
Passes for the festival, which will go down April 22-25, go on sale Nov. 18. They will cost $500-$1,200.
