Third Annual Wide Screen Film Festival
October 31. - November 16. 1997.
Carpenter Performing Arts Center, California, USA

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Gary Prebula Issue 50 - September 1997
Under the artistic direction of Gary Prebula, the mission of the Wide Screen Festival is to educate the public and industry professionals about the special challenges and rewards of the wide screen format and to advocate the protection, preservation and presentation of this very special segment of the 20th century’s most influential art form. The Executive Committee has approved the film programming for this year’s festival which will run for three weekends, October 31 – November 16, with an advance screening on Sunday September 21, 1997. The entire program is subject to change based on acceptable print availability. Likewise, it is presently unclear how many of the films will be available in high quality 70mm prints. In addition to the film screenings, we will present several education and preservation programs. The programs we have scheduled are:

• A panel discussion on cinematography, presented by the International Photographers Guild.
• A program on editing presented by the Motion Picture Editors Guild.
• A program on production design that will be developed by Gene Allen, Jim Bissell and John Muto.
• A screening of the film about preservation “Race to Save 100 Years” by Turner Entertainment Co. The screening will be accompanied by a panel discussion led by Richard P. May, Vice President, Film Preservation for Warner Brothers.

There will be two or three programs in addition to those listed above, as well as a gallery-style exhibition of artwork and equipment significant to the history and development of Wide Screen filmmaking. If people would like additional information, they may call the Festival’s phone number +1 562 985 7033.
