April Prompt: TCM Film Festival

2019_April_TCM

On April 11th, the 10th annual Turner Classic Movie Film Festival will begin in Hollywood. TCMFF celebrates classic films with a jam-packed four-day schedule (April 11th-April 14th) filled with classic film and notable celebrity appearances. In order to share this celebration with the lucky attendees, Cinema Shame will once again be focusing on the films being played at the festival for the month of April. The lists of films scheduled to play are listed below. You can view the official TCMFF schedule here. Maybe you can schedule your watch on the same day as the festival, to join the conversation with those at the festival!

I highly recommend following James Patrick (@007hertzrumble) on twitter, as he will be attending the festival and twittering constantly. Follow the hashtag #tcmff for all discussions and plenty of photos with your favorite Twitter cinephiles. If you follow Cinema Shame and are attending the festival, let us know on twitter and share your experiences. James also previewed the festival with a lengthy post on his blog. 

I’ve picked three movies to knock off the ole Cinema Shame list based on the schedule. After watching Elaine May’s Mikey and Nicky last month, which starred John Cassavetes, I will attempt to watch A Woman Under the Influence. There are at least two movies listed in the festival’s schedule that have been on my Cinema Shame lists in the past, so I will finally knock those off this month: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (a @007hertzrumble favorite) and longtime Cinema Shame contender, Robert Altman’s Nashville.

As always reach out to us on twitter (@Cinemashame) or via email cinemashame@gmail.com.
