Comic Con is soon approaching. Some of the networks have been releasing information on panels. The full programming schedule will probably be out 2 weeks before the start of the con. This link here has a listing of the panels announced to date. (True Blood has been at CCI every year and will hopefully again be there this year). Still no official confirmation but I did ask a few at the True Blood premiere and they hinted that they might be there again keeping fingers crossed!)
CCI posted the festival schedule for the Independent Film Festival today!
The Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival (CCI-IFF) for 2012 offers a full schedule of some of the finest in genre films. All screenings and panels for the CCI-IFF will be held in the Marriott Marquis and Marina, right next door to the Convention Center (next to the Hall A end). The Film Festival will screen in Marriott Hall 2, which is at the far (north) end of the Marriott lobby, outside of the building (follow the signage to get to Marriott Hall 2). Included in this year’s schedule is the return of the popular “Comic-Con Film School” panels on all four days starting at 10:00 AM, along with an assortment of other film-oriented panel discussions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. A special opening night event, the “CCI-IFF Meet and Greet,” will be held on Thursday, July 12, in the foyer outside the Festival room at the Marriott. This event is open to the filmmakers, attendees, and interested fans starting at 7:00 PM.
The CCI-IFF celebrates independent film, with the accent on genre-related entries, including action/adventure, animation, comics-oriented, documentary (related to pop culture topics), horror/suspense, humor, and science fiction/fantasy. The Festival includes a special awards program on Sunday in Marriott Hall 2, beginning at 11:00 AM. Sunday afternoon features rescreenings of the award-winning films. This year’s incredible schedule has a decidedly international flavor, with submissions from Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Israel, and the United Kingdom, in addition to the United States.
Now in its 13th year, the CCI-IFF is a juried event. Respected individuals in the fields of film and popular arts view the submissions and decide which films will be included in the festival and those deserving of prizes and awards.
