ARCHIVAL FILM WILL PREMIERE AUGUST 31 AT IMAGINE FILM FESTIVAL
Back in March, we posted about Peet Gelderblom's When Forever Dies, described as "an archival fiction film assembled from fragments of hundreds of largely forgotten movies, most of which are rarely seen today." At that time, prior to COVID-19 shutting down so many things worldwide, When Forever Dies was to have its world premiere at the Imagine Film Festival in Amsterdam in April. We are happy to see that the now-completed film will premiere at a hybrid edition of the Imagine Film Festival on August 31st.
The When Forever Dies website features the official trailer for the film, as well as the When Forever Dies timeline, which provides a picture of how the film is made up of many films, most of them unseen, from across 125 years of cinema. The site also includes filmmaker bios, Gelderblom's video introduction to the project, and more.
