BIG NEWS! Thanks to Fritzi at Movies, Silently and the folks at Flicker Alley, we have an exciting update for the Classic Movie History Project Blogathon!

We are very pleased to announce that Flicker Alley is going to be sponsoring the Classic Movie History Project Blogathon. Flicker Alley has always been about releasing rare and important films in the highest quality possible and we are honored to be working with them.

Flicker Alley’s sponsorship is in honor of two exciting (and historical) releases:

Dziga Vertov: The Man with the Movie Camera and Other Newly-Restored Works: Vertov’s masterpiece gets the Blu-ray treatment. The set also includes Kino-EyeEnthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass, and Three Songs About Lenin.


3-D Rarities: This collection will be released to commemorate the centenary of the world’s very first 3D exhibition in June 1915. It includes rare material from the 1920s all the way to the 1950s. The collection is compatible with 3D TVs and players but it will also play on normal home video equipment.


The best part? You might just win a copy of that groovy 3D set.

Flicker Alley is going to be giving away a copy of their 3-D Rarities collection for the event. The prize will ship after its release date (June 2015 at the earliest but possibly later). And since we know many of you online and some of you in real life, Flicker Alley will be handling all aspects of the contest and winner selection.

This drawing will be open to readers and participants alike but entry will be limited to residents of the United States and Canada only. Entering is easy. Just follow this link, sign on to the newsletter and you’re in like Flynn! The contest closes on the last day of the blogathon, June 28.
