OTHER CELEBRITY GUESTS

It is American Cinematheque tradition to invite the principal creators of the films it presents to attend events - and share their memories with the audience in post-screening discussions.

In the past 12 years, many of the world's leading directors, actors, writers, producers, composers etc. have attended Cinematheque screenings and participated in memorable conversations about their work.

Inevitably, many of the creators of the films presented by the Cinematheque live in cities and countries far from Hollywood. And those who live in Los Angeles often work away from their hometown. So it is always a delight when someone directly associated with a film is able to attend a screening.

Invitations have been issued to all the locatable principals associated with the movies in the Mods & Rockers! Film Festival. Several V.I.P. invitees are hoping to attend but have not yet been able to confirm. This page is regularly updated, so please check back often.


MOD STAR SEARCH!

The American Cinematheque has invited as many of the actors, musicians, writers, directors and producers of the films in the Mods & Rockers 2000 Film Festival as it has been able to locate. Inevitably it has not been possible to find everyone.

If you are personally associated with - or know how to contact someone who is - principally associated with any of the films in this festival - please contact the festival organizers immediately at starsearch@martinlewis.com with full details. We may not have reached that person yet - and your help would be most appreciated.

There will be free festival tickets for you if you provide a successful lead!
