Now’s the time to reach for your diary/calendar/smartphone and to mark some upcoming dates: 12 – 15 April 2012 sees the third annual TCM Classic Film Festival take place in Hollywood.
The central theme of the 2012 edition of the Festival will be a celebration of style in the movies, from fashion to architecture to production design. The theme will touch on both the influence that movies have on popular styles and the impact that current trends have on the movies. Whether it’s the look of a film’s sets, costumes, title design or movie poster, this theme will put the Hollywood aesthetic in whole new light.
I’m still recovering from my visit to this year’s event, which I wrote about over on my personal blog, and I hope to make it back to Hollywood next year to meet some old friends, make some new ones and discover some classic movies for the first time.
