As part of their annual Festival of Fantasy, Horror & Science Fiction, the American Cinematheque presents a 10th anniversary screening of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT on Thursday, August 20. Co-director Daniel Myrick, actress Heather Donahue, actor Josh Leonard, production designer Ben Rock, producer Robin Cowie and co-producer Mike Monello will be in attendance. Arrivals start at 7:00pm at the Egyptian Theatre courtyard in Hollywood; the screening starts at 7:30pm. Discussion with follow the screening.
Directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick struck gold with this low-budget, hand-held tale of some documentarians who come to a bad end while out shooting footage on location for a movie about the legendary Blair Witch. Not a bad film, exactly, but wildly over-rated.
