May 13, 2021 -- a message
from Cinecon President Stan Taffel


As we begin to see light at the end of the long tunnel we’ve been living in, there has been much conversation about whether or not it will be safe to hold Cinecon in person in 2021.

There are many who are concerned about getting on a plane to Los Angeles, staying at a hotel, eating in restaurants, sitting in a theater for nearly fifteen hours a day for five days with a mask over your face, other protocols that have to be in force to comply with the CDC and with all that, we are not allowed to be at full capacity.

Further, the studios and archives we get most of our films from do not have their complete staff working full time at their facilities and it has been difficult to get confirmations in a timely fashion. All these limitations plus the expense of doing the festival would not be less expensive, in fact, our costs would be more. As you know, we are a non profit concern and with the risk of possibly owing more than we bring in during a pandemic is a big risk for us. There are too many factors in this situation we find ourselves in as the world begins to get back to a new sense of normalcy.

With the safety of our friends and attendees taking predominance, we have decided to hold Cinecon in the virtual world once again. We expect to be back in person next year but for this Labor Day Weekend, CINECONLINE will take to the cyber world.

Last year, we had 20,000 attendees tune in from around the world and there have been countless requests to hold another virtual edition. While this isn’t the way we had hoped we would go for 2021, we are thrilled to welcome back viewers who will watch our festival from the safety of their homes.

The schedule is being assembled and we will announce titles in the coming months.

We are looking forward to this virtual film festival and are already planning our 2022 Cinecon Classic Film Festival IN HOLLYWOOD with our traditional opening night gala with live orchestra.

The details will follow soon so keep checking our website and Facebook page.

Classic Film Festival
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 will have to postponed our next in person show, Cinecon 56, again, this time it will be until the weekend of Sep 1-5 in 2022.

We hope you’ll be able to join us in 2022.
