Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has announced April 26 -29 for the 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival, marking the ninth annual gathering of legendary stars, award-winning fillmmakers and classic movie fans. Held over four days in the heart of Hollywood, the TCM Classic Film Festival is a place where movie lovers from around the world can gather to experience classic movies as they were meant to be experienced: on the big screen, in some of the world’s most iconic venues, with the people who made them. Moreover, the TCM Classic Film Festival strives to be a place where a community of movie fans of all ages can share their love of classic movies with each other, make new friends and see films as they are seldom seen today.
Writing focuses visions, reflects our feelings and inspires great performances on both sides of the camera. Join us for the 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival, celebrating the representation of the written word on the silver screen. From original screenplays to unique adaptations to portrayals of writers real and imagined, we will celebrate the foundation of great film: the written word.
The 2018 TCM Classic Film Festival will cover a wide range of programming themes, including our central theme Powerful Words: The Page Onscreen. Working directly with the Hollywood studios, the world’s notable film archives and private collections, our programs feature some of the most revered movies of all time – many new restorations – and long-lost gems.
In keeping with TCM tradition, all Festival screenings include special introductions to provide context about each film. Specific details about each screening will be announced in the weeks and months ahead, including guest appearances by actors, actresses, directors, producers and other key figures.
