Special Meet and Greet, Benefiting the Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation.

Friday Night, March 1st at 5PM

Join Bay Area Film Events and CinemaSF on Friday night for an informal meet and greet with Vanessa Harryhausen and Connor Heaney. This will be the best opportunity to meet our guests and discuss Ray's life and films.

We will have a special showing of the documentary RAY HARRYHAUSEN SPECIAL EFFECTS TITAN, as well as interviews with Ray done by CREATURE FEATURES hosts Bob Wilkins and John Stanley, courtesy of Tom Wyrsch, in Theater 1. We will also have two of Ray's best known films (THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD and SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER) on 16mm film, plus a panel discussion with Vanessa and Connor, in Theater 2.

This will be the only night for these films in 16mm and your only chance of the weekend to see the documentary and interviews.

Portions of the admission for this night, as well as beer sales from our sponsor, East Brother Beer Company will go to support the Harryhausen Foundation.

The first 100 attendees Friday night will get a poster, commemorative button and exclusive lanyard. These items can be picked up at the Bay Area Film Events booth.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

About the Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation

The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation is a charitable Trust set up by Ray on the 10th April 1986. It is the primary aim of the Foundation to protect Ray’s name and body of work as well as archiving, preserving and restoring Ray’s extensive collection.

In addition the Foundation is firmly committed to show and exhibit, for educational and entertainment purposes, all of Ray’s unique collection which includes the short films as well as his feature productions.

Since Ray’s death on the 7th May 2013, and the acquisition of all of Ray’s entire Collection by the Foundation, the Trustees are committed to continuing Ray’s hopes for the future and protecting and conserving Ray’s name and his unique reputation and contribution to world film history.
