FESTIVAL-To-Play-At-The-Academy-In-NYC-20010101

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Monday Nights with Oscar® series will celebrate summer's proliferation of cultural festivals around the world with a screening of the 1967 Academy Award®-nominated documentary "Festival," on Monday, July 18, at 7 p.m. at the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York City. The program will include a post-screening conversation with director Murray Lerner and singer Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary) about the making of the concert film.

"Festival" captures the annual Newport Folk Festival from 1963-66, including live performances by an all-star lineup of such folk music pioneers as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Judy Collins, and Peter, Paul and Mary, as well as interviews with festival attendees and conversations with artists on topics ranging from musical philosophy to the appeal of folk style.

Lerner also directed "Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight" and "The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival," and has used footage he shot at the Newport Folk Festival and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival as the basis for several more film and TV documentaries. He won an Academy Award for his 1980 documentary "From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China."

This screening will feature a newly struck print from the Academy Film Archive.

Tickets for "Festival" are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. Tickets may be purchased online at www.oscars.org or by mail (a printable order form is available in the Events & Exhibitions section of the website). Tickets may also be purchased at the box office prior to the event (subject to availability).

The Academy Theater is located at 111 East 59th Street (between Park and Lexington avenues) in New York City. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.oscars.org or call (212) 821-9251.
