    Event: 30th Annual Olympia Film Festival
    Location: Capitol Theater, 206 5th Ave. SE, Olympia, WA, USA
    Dates: November 8th to 17th, 2103

    Actress Lana Wood (who played Plenty O'Toole in the 1971 James Bond film "Diamonds Are Forever") will be the featured guest at next week's Olympia Film Festival, organizers recently announced. "We're really honored to have such Hollywood royalty in our historic venue," festival director Lisa Hurwitz said.

    Wood will attend a fundraising dinner Nov. 9 and participate in a question-and-answer session before "Diamonds Are Forever" is screened at the Capitol Theater.

    Wood is helping the Olympia Film Society wrap up its digital cinema campaign. OFS has raised $55,000 of a $65,000 goal, Hurwitz said.

    "We're hoping that by the time the festival is over the fundraising will be complete for the projector," Hurwitz said. A crew is currently installing the new digital projector in the theater. The theater will be closed from Sunday through Nov. 7 to facilitate the film-to-digital conversion.

    After it completes its run in Moscow, Russia, the 'Designing 007' exhibition will move to The Netherlands from 12th October 2014 to 8th February 2015.

    <b>Press Release</b>
    In October 2014 the Kunsthal Rotterdam proudly presents the exhibition Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style. From Dr. No in 1962, starring Sean Connery, to 2012's Skyfall with Daniel Craig, Agent 007 captured the world's imagination. The screen hero has not only headlined the most successful franchise in film history, he has made an indelible impact on the worlds of art, music, fashion, technology, travel, automotive design, and lifestyle.

    The Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibition celebrates this world of innovation and action, style and sex appeal with an inside view of the world's favourite secret agent. More than 500 gadgets, costumes, iconic vehicles, storyboards, graphic designs and props, together with numerous film fragments, present an unequalled multimedia experience of the world of James Bond.

    The exhibition has been formed with exclusive material from the archives of EON Productions on commission from the Barbican, London by guest curator Bronwyn Cosgrave, Oscar®-winning costume-designer Lindy Hemming, and designer Ab Rogers. The exhibition has been presented previously in London, Toronto, Shanghai and Melbourne and will feature as part of The UK-Russia Year of Culture in Moscow before arriving in Rotterdam.

    It should continue forever. I'd like to see it return to Canada real soon. I miss it already.

    And we need more big screen double-bill presenations of Bond films too.
    They are out of this world shows.
    I am already reaching out to the Great Digital Film Festival to give us a steady diet of Bond doubles each year.

    The OHMSS and TB double that they showed this year was mind blowing.

    @leas_mole first noticed this, tracking Seydoux to @berlinale

    The new lead Bond Girl has a new film (Diary of a Chambermaid) appearing at berlinale festival, which is also debuting
    "A newly restored ultra-high definition version of #GOLDFINGER (1964) will premiere at the 65th @berlinale in February"

    I've seen GF twice at digital film presentations in recent years, but unlike the other restored films, GF was in a "letterbox" format, crystal clear mind you, but not in a full widescreen format.
    Maybe this version puts GF to the head of the class and gives it the full widescreen presentation, not to mention ultra-high def whatever that is.

    Join us at the Transatlantic Book Fair for a James Bond panel hosted by Ian Fleming bibliographer and bookseller Jon Gilbert!

    About this Event
    The irrepressible James Bond is returning to the big screen soon in the film “No Time to Die.” Join us at the Transatlantic Book Fair for a panel, hosted by Fleming bibliographer and bookseller Jon Gilbert, who will be discussing Ian Fleming and his iconic character, James Bond.

    Besides building major Fleming collections around the world, Mr. Gilbert produced a mammoth comprehensive and authoritative bibliography of Ian Fleming in 2012. On the interest in Fleming books Gilbert wrote in an article “…they are popular and collectible. James Bond merchandise and memorabilia is a whole industry in itself and its strength continues to be felt in the world of rare books. As each new film or book is released interest rises in the literature of Bond’s creator, as seen in the prices achieved at auction…”
    Panelists include Ajay Chowdhury, author and expert on Bond films and Rebecca Bauman from the Lilly Library, which houses a major Fleming collection.

    Jon Gilbert is an English bibliophile, historian and the official bibliographer of Ian Fleming, creator of the fictional character James Bond. He is also an authority on J.K. Rowling first editions. He was educated at Caterham School and Roehampton Institute London. According to Fleming-family publisher Queen Anne Press, Gilbert is perhaps the foremost expert on the works of Ian Fleming and the literary history of James Bond. Through Adrian Harrington booksellers, he has become an internationally renowned dealer in rare Fleming material, and is a member of the Ian Fleming Foundation. Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, which was published in October 2012, is the result of both a career immersed in the writings of Ian Fleming, and four years intensive research following Fleming’s centenary year in 2008. The book was the winner of the 16th ILAB Breslauer Prize for Bibliography, awarded in 2014.
    Rebecca Baumann is the Head of Public Services at the Lilly Library, the rare book and manuscript library of Indiana University. In their time at the Lilly Library, they have taught over 700 one-shot instructional sessions for undergraduates, graduate students, and community groups. They are also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Information and Library Science at IU, teaching three courses in the Rare Book and Manuscript Specialization: The Book 1450 to the Present, Rare Book Librarianship, and Rare Book Curatorship. Their research interests center on the history of pulp and paperback publishing and popular genres including horror, science fiction, and romance. Publications include Frankenstein 200: The Birth, Life, and Resurrection of Mary Shelley’s Monster (IU Press, 2018) and “Speculative F***books: The Brief Life of Essex House” (in Dangerous Visions and New Worlds: Radical Science Fiction, 1950 to 1985, PM Press, 2021).
    Ajay Chowdhury was born in London and read Law at university there and in The Netherlands. For over two decades, Ajay has consulted on various motion picture, music, publishing, television and theatrical projects. Ajay has been involved with British and European feature film production in various capacities. He was the associate producer on two feature films, ‘Lost Dogs’ (2005) and ‘Flirting With Flamenco’ (2006). Ajay has been an Advisory Board member on Tongues On Fire Film Festival. In 2015, he co-wrote the internationally bestselling, ground-breaking Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films with Matthew Field, published by The History Press. The book was updated in paperback to cover The Road To Bond 25 and published in August 2018. As the spokesperson for The James Bond International Fan Club, Ajay is frequently called upon by worldwide media to comment on all things relating to Ian Fleming's James Bond 007
