Filmex
The Los Angeles International Film Exposition, also called Filmex, was an annual Los Angeles film festival held in the 1970s and early 1980s. It was the predecessor of the American Film Institute's Los Angeles International Film Festival. After the final Filmex festival in 1983, the founders/organizers of the festival devoted their attentions to developing a new nonprofit cultural organization, the American Cinematheque, which they created to be a permanent year-round film festival in Los Angeles.Contents1 Filmex Timeline1.1 1971 1.2 1972 1.3 1974 1.4 1975 1.5 1976 1.6 1977 1.7 1978 1.8 1979 1.9 1980 1.10 1981 1.11 1982 1.12 1983 1.13 1986 1.14 19872 References Filmex Timeline[edit] 1971[edit]The First Los Angeles International Film Exposition, a.k.a

A film festival is an organized, extended presentation of films in one or more cinemas or screening venues, usually in a single city or region.

Some festivals focus on a specific film-maker or genre (e.g., film noir) or subject matter (e.g., horror film festivals). A number of film festivals specialise in short films of a defined maximum length. Film

A marathon is an event in which viewers or readers engage many hours-worth of media (film, television, books, YouTube videos etc.) in a condensed time period. This phrase represents a two-fold shift from binge-watch in that it incorporates other media (not just television) and it reduces the negative connotations associated with bingeing. In the 2014 book Media Marathoning: Immersions in Morality, Lisa Perks describes media marathoning as a “comprehensive and complimentary phrase” that “connotes a conjoined triumph of commitment and stamina. This phrase also captures viewers’ or readers’ engrossment, effort, and sense of accomplishment surrounding their media interaction.” [1] Netflix Executive Todd Yellin is quoted as saying "I don't like the term 'binge,' because it sounds almost pathological
