The five day festival primarily featured films from the mid-teens to the late-thirties and focused to a great extent on forgotten, or at least seldom seen, titles. Of course there are often reasons why a title is seldom screened, but even in cases when a film was not Great Cinema (such as was the case with The Green Archer (1940)) it was always Great Fun.
The festival runs a jam packed schedule, with screenings at the Egyptian Theater running back-to-back starting early each day and often continuing past midnight.

This dearth of slides among the dealers was not unexpected and I wasn't disappointed. My trip to Cinecon this year was to check out the program, renew acquaintances, and to make new friends - and from that perspective the festival was a roaring success.
