In just 24 hours, I will be hoping an early morning flight to Los Angeles, destination Hollywood! I am beyond excited to attend the TCM Classic Film Festival for a second year.
I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all as a member of the media, particularly with those of you who will be watching the festivities from home. I've also watched TCMFF from afar, and I know that while nothing beats being there, it can be a lot of fun to catch a glimpse of the action.
I will make you feel like you are there!
For oodles of festival updates follow me on Twitter at @classicmovieblg and on Instagram at kcclassic.
I'll add a few brief posts to the blog during the festival as well, to be followed by more detailed coverage once I join the real world again.
It has been interesting to see the many choices other bloggers have made after agonizing over the festival schedule.
My list hasn't changed much since I posted it, though I am considering switching out The French Connection (1971) for the hand-cranked films presentation.
Check out these other lists for inspiration, and to get a feel for how the festival will unfold:
A Shroud of Thoughts
The Black Maria
Classic Movie Blog
The Hollywood Revue
I See a Dark Theater
Journeys in Classic Film
Lindsay's Movie Musings
Once Upon a Screen
Out of the Past
Vivien Leight and Laurence Olivier
The Black Maria will also be live blogging the event here (page not live until festival time).
And remember, if you're flying solo at a screening and you'd like a seat buddy, send me a tweet at @classicmovieblg to join up with me and whatever other gang I'm with!
