REEL HEROES is a documentary that reveals the underground world of film collectors and guerrilla film preservationists who refuse to allow film to die in the digital age. They collect, share, archive, preserve and restore films -- often against enormous odds -- so that future generations can enjoy the communal film experience as it was originally intended to be. Film producers Antonia Carey and Nick Palazzo premiered the above trailer last year at Cinecon 53.

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.
Loews Hollywood Hotel will be the host hotel with all screenings taking place at the historic Egyptian Theater just down the street on Hollywood Blvd. Loews offers special room rates to Cinecon attendees, click here for more information.
Everything you need to know about Cinecon 54 will be available on this website in the months to come, including news about films to be screened, hotel and dealer information, and registration details.
We hope you’ll join us at CINECON 54 this Labor Day weekend.
