On July 13, the eighth annual 60’s oriented summer festival kicks-off at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood with the West Coast premiere of the ultra-rare 1964 Beatles documentary What’s Happening! The Beatles In The USA by legendary documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles, followed by their historical 1969 documentary Gimme Shelter featuring The Rolling Stones during their U.S. tour, which focused on the tragic events at Altamount.

<>Other festival highlights will include an entire weekend saluting Stax Records, with the world premiere of Respect Yourself – a new, two hour documentary which features a who’s who of Stax artists, including interviews with Stax enthusiasts such as Bono, Elvis Costello, and Chuck D.  The whole weekend of July 21-22 is dedicated to Stax with two Stax Record-themed D.A. Penne Baker films Only The Strong Survive and SHAKE Otis At Monterey, and the 1972 concert film Wattstax, and the award-winning 2003 documentary Sounds Of Memphis, which explores the musical history of the city.  Not to be missed! <> 

The Fest will also pay tribute to the late, great Ahmet Ertegun and the 60th anniversary of Atlantic Records by presenting the world premiere of the critically acclaimed American Masters documentary, Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built.  Other special screenings include a new print of the 1957 Elvis Presley film Jailhouse Rock and Smokey Joe’s Café featuring an in person tribute to the songwriting icons Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.  This festival was founded in 1999 by British rock afficianado, comic, and producer Martin Lewis, and is now America’s largest annual celebration of rock-related films. <> 

Other highlights during the popular Festival include a tribute to the late Harry Nilsson, with the Hollywood premiere of the new film Who Is Harry Nilsson? featuring Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, Jon Voight, Eric Idle, Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, and archive footage of John Lennon.  The July 14 screening will be attended by members of Nilsson’s family, celebrity friends and filmmakers David Leaf and John Scheinfeld. <>
