Latest Interview and a Christmas Cartoon Carnival!

I'm proud to announce that fellow collector and cine-enthusiast Julian Antos has interviewed yours truly for the Northwest Chicago Film Society blog. Read the piece here, which was posted in conjunction with a marvelous Wladyslaw Starewicz program that the society recently presented. Several of the prints were on loan from the Tom Stathes collection. Thanks, Julian!

And for those of you in the NYC area, please consider attending The Tom Stathes Cartoon Carnival #11: It's Christmas Time!

Facebook event RSVP

Event info:

To celebrate the holiday, Tom Stathes digs out some rare, vintage Christmas cartoons for your enjoyment. We’ll be screening more than an hour’s worth of cool animation from the 1920s through 1940s on actual 16mm film with a projector.

By doing this, Tom seeks to keep alive a form of film presentation that is now quickly dying: the projection of real film. Tom is also replicating the old semi-professional projected 16mm film screenings which were common in schools, clubs, private homes, and neighborhood cinemas in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Come be a part of our fun and unique holiday experience, which you're sure to enjoy!

We're thrilled to present this screening in conjunction with our host venue for the evening, LaunchPad.

$10 at the door, and a nice 'wintry drink' is included with the price!

Doors at 8pm and the cartoons start a little afterward. Earlier arrival is better if you require seating.

Details: Friday December 21st, 8pm at LaunchPad, 721 Franklin Ave btw/ Park and Sterling. 2/3/4/5 train to Franklin Ave.

A superb account of an aristocrat of silent film. The photography reflects the essence of sensationalism and realism. *** Bravo
