Our friend David Shepard secured permission for
us to run the newly restored hand-colored version of Georges Méliès' 1902
short classic, A TRIP TO THE MOON on the final night of the 2012
event. The film was opening segment at the international
Cannes Film Festival in Spring 2011 and was featured prominently in the
recent hit film, HUGO. It is believed that this color version has not
been seen by the public in over 80 years!
Our SPECIAL THANKS to Flicker Alley for their support in sharing these newly restored films of Georges Méliès.
