The 2014 edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival will run April 10-13. The festival, in its fifth year, will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Turner Classic Movies cable channel.
Passes for the 2013 TCM Classic Film Fest will go on sale in November at prices from $249 to $1,599. TCM's Robert Osborne will again serve as official host of the festival, with Ben Mankiewicz also introducing various events.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel will again serve as the festival's official hotel and central gathering point, with screenings and events held at the TCL Chinese Theatre and Chinese 6 Theatres, as well as the Egyptian Theatre.
Last year's festival featured world premiere restorations of Buster Keaton's silent comedy "The General," the 1963 prison break movie "The Great Escape" and the 1968 Barbra Streisand musical "Funny Girl." Perhaps expanding on the notion of what makes a film a classic, the festival also showed Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and the disaster spoof "Airplane!"
