Jess Franco will appear at the OFFSCREEN FILM FEST with his films!

Thanks to Wim for this email regarding the showing of some rare 35mm prints of several key Jess Franco titles. The director and Lina Romay will be in attendance. Follow the link to the OFFSCREEN FESTIVAL site for details.

In addition some Eurowesterns will be screened. Here is a list from email along with the Franco titles. I'm especially interested in the reported 84m print of NECRONOMICON. The longest available is about 79m.

By the way - the festival will also feature 14 spaghetti westerns on 35mm prints. The final program including dates will be made public at the press conference on februari 18th. I've got info on the languange options on most of the prints, more detail will be available on the 18th :

- The Big Silence : english dub + dutch/french subs
- Django Kill : italian dub + english subs
- The Price Of Power : italian dub + english subs
- Kill & Pray (Requiescant) : english dub + ? subs
- Cemetary Without Crosses (Une corde, un colt) : french dub + ? subs
- And God Said To Cain : english dub + dutch/french subs

All on 35mm film prints except for Requiescant as the only one on 16mm.

I'd love to attend this, too.
Still kicking myself for not being able to attend Franco retrospective in Paris a little while back.
To watch a JF film in a 35-mil print is a dream.
