Please note that all appearances are based on current availability and are of course subject to change in the event of unforseen circumstances. This page is regularly updated to reflect the latest news.

However - we are pleased to say that all the guests scheduled to appear at the Mods & Rockers festivals in 1999 and 2000 were able to attend. And we even had some unbilled surprise guests - such as Olivia Newton-John - who attended the screening of her 1969 movie "Toomorrow" and delighted fans with a Q&A and autograph-signing!

Many more guests have been approached and are currently trying to schedule appearances. This page will be constantly updated as further guests are confirmed. So please bookmark this page and return periodically.


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 13 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.


The American Cinematheque has invited as many of the actors, musicians, writers, directors and producers of the films in the Mods & Rockers 2001 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 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!
