Michael Schlesinger to Attend the 2019 Niagara Falls International Film Festival.

Michael Schlesinger is widely acknowledged as the dean of classic film distributors, having worked for more than 25 years at MGM, Paramount and Sony, keeping hundreds of vintage movies in theatrical release (and later on DVD), and instigating the restoration of many more, including the award-winning completion of Orson Welles’ 1942 documentary “It’s All True” some 50 years later. He’s recorded several DVD commentaries, is a “Trailers From Hell” guru and has appeared in numerous documentaries, notably the Emmy-nominated HBO smash “If You’re Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast.” He is also a trustee of the American Cinematheque and a two-time past President (and remains a board member) of the Cinecon Classic Film Festival. Behind the camera, he wrote and produced the American version of “Godzilla 2000” and co-produced such Larry Blamire parodies as “The Lost Skeleton Returns Again” and “Dark and Stormy Night.” His maiden effort as a writer/director, “The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster”–available on DVD from Kino Lorber–was nominated for two Rondo Awards (he has already won two). He is thrilled that one of those misadventures, SCHMO BOAT, will be making its Eastern Premiere at the NFIFF.
