Don't Miss 3D-Auteurs in New York on November 11-29, 2016
"3-D Auteurs," a 19-day, 34-film festival spotlighting stereoscopic 3D movies by some of history's most distinguished directors, will run at Film Forum in New York, USA next month. The festival spans 3-D's earliest days (including some turn-of-the-century films by pioneer Georges Méliès) to the present, and represents virtually every genre, including Westerns, Film Noir, and Science Fiction.
3D in the 1950s was a cumbersome process that involved running two 35mm prints simultaneously (one for the left eye and the other for the right) with special filters for the projection booth windows, a silver screen, and polarised glasses. So-called "double-system" prints are therefore extremely rare, with places that can show them equally rare. Seven of those gems will be projected at 3D-Auteurs, including the only known 3D copy of Taza, Son of Cochise, starring Rock Hudson.
