    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

    "Animation Rarities," featuring 35mm tinted prints from the UCLA Film and Television Archive, will be screened at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 9 as part of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

    Curated by UCLA film preservationist Jere Guldin and sponsored by Pixar Animation Studios, the 95-minute program features an all-new selection of animated cartoons by such innovators as Otto Messmer, Hugh Harman, Archie N. Griffith and the Fleischer Brothers.

    Included are Felix Weathers the Weather(Pat Sullivan Studios, 1926), Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in Sick Cylinders(M.J. Winkler Productions, 1928) and the Lyman H. Howe Films Company "Hodge-Podge" travelogue The Wandering Toy(1928).

    All-time favorite KoKo's Earth Control(1928) returns, featuring Fitz the Dog in a devastating performance.

    Michael Mortilla will provide a live piano accompaniment. An accomplished composer and performer, he has created original scores for theater, dance and film, and regularly performs for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Silent Society and the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

    The 10th anniversary San Francisco Silent Film Festival runs until Sunday, July 10 at the beautifully restored Castro Theatre, originally built in 1921 to show silent films. The theater is located at 429 Castro Street (between Market and 18th).
