The festival will be held in Hollywood from April 28th to May 1st, 2016.
The biggest news is that there will be a tribute to actress Gina Lollobrigida, who will appear in person at screenings of her films TRAPEZE (1956) and BUONA SERA, MRS. CAMPBELL (1968).
Also announced for the festival: Marlee Matlin attending a screening of CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD (1986) and Bruce Brown attending a 50th anniversary screening of his film THE ENDLESS SUMMER (1966).
It was also announced that VOICES OF LIGHT: THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (1928) will be presented with a live orchestra and chorus.
World premiere restorations to screen at the festival include THE KID (1921), HORSE FEATHERS (1932), SHANGHAI EXPRESS (1932), THE SONG OF BERNADETTE (1943), and THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM (1944).
