Celebrating 30 Years of Cinefest

16mm film is alive and well at Cinefest–even in the dealer’s room.

You can even buy parts for 16mm projectors at Cinefest.

Film programmer par excellence Rick Scheckman and silent-film accompanist Ben Model check out a glass slide in the dealer’s room.

Film books, anyone? Doug Swarthout’s Berry Hill Bookshop is an “anchor tenant” in the dealer’s room–great selection, fair prices.

Conferring between films, archivist extraordinaire David Shepard and head of the UCLA Film and Television Archive, Jan-Christopher Horak.

Sharing a laugh in the screening room: author, historian and teacher Richard Koszarski and Brigham Young University archivist James D’Arc.

Hi, Leonard…

As usual you bring the festivities vividly to life in your Cinefest recap. I’ll begin resting up and hopefully will be ready and able for the trip next year. Our fund-raising efforts for our theatre restoration project in Jaffrey have paid off, enabling us to start working on the building in 2011. We’re firming up our summer and fall movie schedule, which I’ll send you when it’s ready. In the meantime, I wish you, Alice and Jessie well!
Ars Gratia Artis, Mike
