1st annual INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL will begin with a brief history and presentation of one of Georges Méliès most famous and noteworthy productions, presented in the original hand-colored process. The literary source material was adapted from H.G. Wells’ “First Men in the Moon” and Jules Verne’s “From the Earth to the Moon”. It is with extreme pleasure that the SUNSET FILM SOCIETY pays tribute to this famous French film pioneer–tragically overlooked in America–as the Cinema’s 1st Creative Artist!
