Twenty six years ago (1992), a group of film enthusiasts involved in the restoration of the Marie Dressler house had a wild idea. Why not hold a festival showing the films in which Marie Dressler had starred? This seemingly fantastic idea grew into the present form in which we show a variety of films generally made before about 50-60 years ago.
We will often, although not always, include a film starring Marie Dressler.

The weekend on October 12-14 is best enjoyed as an event and not just a collection of great movies.
We start with a movie for pass holders only, then there’s our Gala reception followed by two films.
On Saturday we show a collection of six movies that range from very old, silent films starring Mary Pickford, Erich von Stroheim or Douglas Fairbanks, to talkies and musicals.
On Sunday we show four movies.

    Honestly, how is Japan is so talented when it comes to animation but so fucking absurdly terrible when it comes to film? Seriously. I don”t get it. Is it because all of the decent directors and editors go into animation rather than film? Do Japanese studios really not understand that the over the top behavior in anime does not translate to film? Who do they have costuming these people? It literally always looks like shitty cosplay rather than believable characters EVERY SINGLE TIME. The worst is that the special effects in these films sometimes do an adequate job considering their budgets but the directors trying to “recreate shots as opposed to adapting it to film completely makes it all feel childish and fake. We may do a lot of things wrong in the west, but if there is one thing Europe and America has got down it is film, we have literally blended the art and science of film and Japan is like 50 years behind. vendor information pages
