Featured Films of the Festival:


6pm – 7pm VIP Reception with KAYE BALLARD

THE RITZ (Richard Lester, 1976, USA, 91 Minutes)

“It’s a ball of a brawl!” — Judith Crist

Acclaimed director Richard Lester (A HARD DAY’S NIGHT, PETULIA) serves up an exercise in manic mayhem when a Cleveland sanitation company owner who is “married to the mob” crosses his gangster brother-in-law and finds himself hiding out in the “safest place in the world”: a New York City gay bathhouse called THE RITZ!

WAITING FOR GUFFMAN (Christopher Guest, 1997, USA, 84 Minutes)

“A madcap gem. As touching as it is hilarious.” — Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
Christopher Guest plays Corky in this critically acclaimed comedy that does for regional theatre what THIS IS SPINAL TAP did for rock ‘n’ roll and BEST OF SHOW did for the world of Dog Shows. Catherine O’Hara and Fred Willard as a pair of married travel agents who have never traveled outside of Blaine; Parker Posey as a champion Dairy Queen ice cream cone maker; Eugene Levy as an extremely nearsighted dentist with really bad teeth; Matt Keeslar as a hot but oblivious truck mechanic; and Bob Balaban as an increasingly frustrated musical director, co-star as just some of the stagestruck townsfolk who pin their hopes of being discovered on Corky’s hilariously hapless theatre production.
