Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has set April 10-13 as the dates for the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival. This will mark the fifth consecutive year TCM has brought together legendary stars, award-winning filmmakers and classic movie fans from around the globe for the four-day cinematic celebration in Hollywood. Making the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival even more special, the event will coincide with TCM's 20th anniversary as a leading authority in classic film.
Passes for the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival are set to go on sale in November. TCM host and film historian Robert Osborne will once again serve as official host of the TCM Classic Film Festival, with TCM's Ben Mankiewicz introducing various events. The central theme of the festival will be Family in the Movies: The Ties that Bind.
In celebration of the network's 20th birthday and the fifth anniversary of the TCM Classic Film Festival, TCM is summoning its family of movie lovers from around the globe to come to Hollywood for a cinematic celebration of the ties that bind us together. In keeping with the theme of Family in the Movies, the TCM Classic Film Festival is going to showcase on-screen clans of all types – big and small, happy and imperfect, musical and dramatic. The festival will spotlight the first families of Hollywood and the filmmaking dynasties that have entertained generations. It will explore the kinship that connects close-knit groups of professionals behind the camera, such as the stock companies of classic Hollywood. From the bond between parents and children to sibling rivalries, TCM recognizes the power of family to touch us all.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, which has a longstanding role in movie history and was the site of the first Academy Awards® ceremony, will serve as the official hotel for the festival for the fifth consecutive year, as well as a central gathering point for attendees. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel will also offer special rates for festival attendees. Screenings and events during the festival will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre, the Chinese 6 Theatres and the Egyptian Theatre.
