Orson Welles Film Festival; Thank you all

We thank all cinema lovers who attended Orson Welles Film Festival held at Coimbatore Cosmopolitan club on 20th July 2008

We thank Mr.Baskaran of Hollywood DVD Shoppe for supporting the event and Mr.G.D.Gopalakrishnan for all the help.

We also record our grateful thanks to our member M.Anand (Film distributor) for providing us with funds for a brand new screen.

It’s the greatest railroad train a boy ever had.

—Orson Welles, after coming to Hollywood in 1939

May we be accursed if we ever forget for one second that he alone with Griffith—one in silent days, one sound—was able to start up that marvelous little electric train. All of us, always, will owe him everything.

—Jean-Luc Godard on Welles
