The CINECONLINE Festival has ended.
Cineconline 2021 was streamed live right here from September 3 - 6.
Dear Cinecon friends old and new, this year we are reaching more people than ever. It's so great to see on our Facebook page how everyone is making this fun even while watching virtually. Whatever way you are able to enjoy these wonderful films, let's remember how important it is to support this special event. Our dear Ruta Lee put it so perfectly when she reminded us that supporting Cinecon is vital. This takes months of hard work and preparation and we must continue to value this in our lives.
Whether you've traveled to past Cinecons or are experiencing this for the first time, please do your part. If everyone gave even five or ten dollars for this four day film holiday it would go a long way to support what you love. The donation button is located below. Please give what you can. Any contribution will help. All donations are tax deductible.

We are dedicating this year's show to a trio of wonderful people that we lost in the last year. Norman Lloyd received our Cinecon Legacy Award in 2017 at the age of 102. While spending time with us he dazzled us with his endless vitality and enthusiasm. He passed in May at 106. Jane Withers was a dear and longtime friend of Cinecon. She was a talented child actress in the 1930s and 1940s. She loved her fans and they loved her. When she visited our show (many times over the years) you could always find her talking with fans and signing autographs. She passed last month. And finally dear friend and long time Cinephile Marty Kearns. Marty is probably best known as a memorabilia dealer and lover of classic film but very longtime Cinecon attendees will remember that Marty actually ran the show a couple of times. First at Cinecon 11 in 1975 and then at 16 in 1980. He was a generous friend to all who knew him. Marty Passed away last October. Click here to see a tribute to Marty from our Facebook page.
Cineconline 2021 will be a four day *live* streaming online edition of the Cinecon Classic Film Festival and it will run Friday, September 3 through Monday, September 6 right here on our main page.
Cinecon President Stan Taffel and Stu Shostak, of the online interview program Stu's Show, worked together to produce this online extravaganza.
The four day program has everything you’ve come to expect from Cinecon: a great mix of sound and silent films and shorts (silents will be accompanied by our musical stalwarts, Jon Mirsalis, Frederick Hodges and Scott Lasky) which includes some rarely seen specialties, 2 brand new documentaries and a Kinecon at Cinecon program that features rare early clips from television.
You can take a look at our film page to find our what we'll be showing and our schedule page to find our when we'll be showing it.
For more than half a century Cinephiles have gathered over Labor Day Weekend to celebrate the movies at the annual Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Cinecon is where archivists, authors, collectors and film fans come together for five days of classic film screenings, special programs, celebrity guests, and the best movie memorabilia show in the nation. Cinecon is dedicated to showcasing unusual films that are rarely given public screenings.
Above is the paragraph that has always described our show. This is who we are or were until the Covid-19 virus shut everything down. And this is who we hope to be again, a live film festival bringing film fans from around the country (and world) together in our mutual love of great films. We will have to postponed our next in person show, Cinecon 56, again, this time it will be until the weekend of Sep 1-5 in 2022.
