1995: Centennial of cinema

Ohjelmakirja 1995In 1995, Espoo Ciné celebrated the hundredth anniversary of cinema. Within the five festival days, Espoo Ciné screened 87 films from fourteen countries and organized a seminar on film criticism, which was a success. Due to the centennial, the Festival screened A Woman of Affairs, a Clarence Brown film from the silent period, starring John Gilbert and Greta Garbo, who broke through in Hollywood around that time. The Festival was proud to welcome as a guest Leatrice Gilbert Fountain, John Gilbert’s daughter and author of his biography.

Some of the main themes at the Festival were Believe What You See, Sleepless in Tapiola and Living Images. The programme also included two exhibitions: The Birth of the Movies 1895–1995, assembled by the British Council, and a dashing film-related flower arrangement exhibition by the flower arranging school Kukkakinkerit.
