Manny Pacheco on Classic Film Festivals

With national protocols in place for the Corona Virus COVID-19, many large events–including film festivals — have been cancelled. Manny Pacheco laments with Celebrating Act 2 founders, Art Kirsch and John Coleman, that there will not be a TCM Classic Film Fest this year. It’s grown to be a large Hollywood celebration. They discuss other film festivals such as Cinecon and the Essanay Museum which was founded by “Bronco Billy” Anderson and employed most of the great silent film stars including, Ben Turpin, Charlie Chaplin and more.
