TCM Classic Film Festival - A Journey

VAV!/March 26, 2015 The TCM Classic Film Festival is THE place where movie buffs of all ages, from around the globe, assemble to experience classic movies as they were meant to be experienced: on the big screen, in some of the world's most iconic venues, and with the gifted artists who made them. "The theme of the 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival is History According to Hollywood. The Old West. Medieval England. Ancient Rome. Hollywood has found endless inspiration in re-creating historical moments and bringing to life the heroes and villains of the past, creating a form of time travel for audiences through the ages and around the world. These films, however, are not always true to the historical record—filmmakers have often created works about the past that are a reflection of the period in which they were made, or change facts to suit their storyline. The 2015 TCM Classic Film Festival will explore how cinema has shaped how we view, and remember, history." - TCM
