I am so proud that Table Manners will be screening this October 25th and 26th in NYC as part of the Jim Henson Foundation/BAM ‘Puppets on Film festival': ‘…an annual festival of the best puppetry on film, featuring innovative short films, special guests, and more”.
The programme includes a special screening of films including
The Dark Crystal – This one-night-only event celebrates Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s cult classic. With special guests Brian, Wendy, and Toby Froud & J.M. Lee in person.
Return of the Jedi – Though a showcase for state-of-the-art special effects, the third Star Wars film uses puppetry to bring to life two of its most iconic characters: the sagacious Yoda and the voluminous villain Jabba the Hutt. With special guests Kirk Thatcher and Wendy Froud in person.
I am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story – This soul-stirring documentary delves into the life and art of Caroll Spinney, the puppeteer who, for over 40 years, has been beloved by television audiences as Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. With Dave LaMattina, Chad N. Walker, and Caroll Spinney in person
What a great line up!
