This weekend (Feb 18 – 20), Cinefamily will be honoring John’s thirty years of groundbreaking independent filmmaking with screenings of six of his films. John and Maggie, as well as some special friends and colleagues, will be introducing the films and taking part in Q&A sessions.
Cinefamily’s Weekend w/ John Sayles will kick off on Thursday (Feb 18), with RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS SEVEN. On Friday (Feb 19) there will be a double feature presentation of BROTHER FROM ANOTHER PLANET and PIRANHA, which will be introduced by producer Roger Corman.
On Saturday (Feb 20), the Writers Guild Foundation is sponsoring a Master Class with John (moderated by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Josh Olson) before a screening of the digitally restored CITY OF HOPE. The weekend will wrap up later that evening with a double feature presentation of LIANNA and BABY IT’S YOU.
