Film Scouts Festival Fever Feast of Fall Technical-support From Apple Computer, Cybercasts from the Europe


Film Scouts feeds your festival fever with a feast of fall cybercasts from the Edinburgh, Telluride, Deauville, Venice, Toronto and New York film festivals.

Turn on, tune in and find out the latest and the best in new films -- from Hollywood blockbusters to independent visions. If you can't go in person, be there virtually.

Film Scouts continues to feature the best of summer cinema from the majors and the indies. Currently playing are: Universal's ``The Frighteners,'' Miramax's ``Trainspotting,'' Gramercy's ``The Trigger Effect,'' October's ``Small Faces,'' New Line's ``The Adventures of Pinocchio'' and Warner Bros.' ``Tin Cup,'' among Film Scouts' many original programs and archives from events around the world.

While Cannes may be concluded, Film Scouts on the Riviera (the 1996 Cannes International Film Festival) continues to feature updated pages of reminiscences, reviews and celebrity sightings up and down the Croisette.

Looking ahead to 1997, the 50th-anniversary year of the Cannes International Film Festival, Film Scouts will present Film Scouts on the Riviera as a yearlong event, celebrating La Belle France and all the glamour that is Cannes.

Forget winter and spend time on the Riviera with Film Scouts, and reminiscence about the last 50 years of Cannes. Join us on the virtual yacht, M.V. Film Scout, as we set sail from New York in November for chats, games, pop quizzes and features and a leisurely, star-studded ride to Cannes' 50th-birthday party.
