The CINECONLINE Festival has ended.
Cineconline was streamed live right here from September 3 - 5.
A message to our Cinecon friends
This was a challengeing year for us at Cinecon (as no doubt it was for everyone). We knew by May that we wouldn't be able to hold our annual Labor Day Film Festival live in Hollywood this year. But we wanted to do something. Cinecon president Stan Taffel came up with a plan to put Cinecon on the internet.
With the help of our friend Stu Shostak, of the online interview program Stu's Show, who had the web know-how that we needed, we proceded to put together our online extravaganza.
So on Thursday September 3 throught Saturday September 5 we held our first ever live streaming Cineconline Classic Film Festival.
We were overwelmed with the results. The first day we had over 2,000 viewers and over 5,000 each of the next 2 days. People from across the country and even some from around the world tuned in. You can read more about the fans and what they had to say on our Facebook page
We'd like to thank everyone who joined us to make the show a success. We hope we'll be able to meet in person next year on Labor Day weekend for Cinecon 56.
Cinecon is a 501c3 nonprofit concern and we understand the challenging times many are facing, we are hoping that some of our Cinecon friends may be able to provide any financial contribution to our festival. Please click on the "donate" button if you are able to help. The button will take you to a page that only says Hollywood Heritage but rest assured you are on the right page to donate to Cinecon/Hollywood Heritage.
If you'd rather donate by check or money order make it out to "Cinecon" and send it to Cinecon,

For more than half a century Cinephiles have gathered over Labor Day Weekend to celebrate the movies at the annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Cinecon is where archivists, authors, collectors and film fans come together for five days of classic film screenings, special programs, celebrity guests, and the best movie memorabilia show in the nation. Cinecon is dedicated to showcasing unusual films that are rarely given public screenings.
Above is the paragraph that has always described our show. This is who we are or were until the Covid-19 virus shut everything down. And this is who we hope to be again, a live film festival bringing film fans from around the country (and world) together in our mutual love of great films. We have postponed our next in person show, Cinecon 56, until the weekend of Sep 2-6 2021. We don't know yet if we'll be able to have that show but we hope to know sometime after the first of the year.
