Those making presentations on stage include Jennifer Aniston, Jack Black, Michael Douglas, Robert Downey Sr., Jon Favreau, Jodie Foster, Anthony Michael Hall, Jared Harris, Garry Shandling, Joel Silver and Robin Wright. In addition pre-taped tributes from Samuel L. Jackson, Stephen Fry and Ben Stiller will be presented.
Proceeds from this annual tribute fund the year-round community film programs of the American Cinematheque, the non-profit viewer-supported arts organization that preserves the historic 1922 Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard and the 1940 Aero Theatre on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.
The American Cinematheque's public programming celebrates the art of the moving picture in all of its forms - from the classics, to American independents, the latest international productions, documentaries, shorts, animation, and experimental projects. Series are highlighted by screenings of rare works, special prints and audience discussions with filmmakers.
Founded in 1981, the Cinematheque is dedicated to preserving the movie-going experience - presenting films on the big screen, as they were meant to be seen and heard. For more information about upcoming programs visit www.americancinematheque.com.
