Far out! We are excited to team up with The Rosebud Cinema in hosting a blogathon that looks at the year 1967 in film.

1967 was a watershed year in Hollywood. Some regard it as the start of unprecedented creativity in American cinema; others regard it as the era of self-indulgent filmmaking. Regardless, it is a year worth examining. Hollywood would not be the same after 1967.

The 1967 IN FILM blogathon runs June 20-22, and topics can be as varied as the films released that year. You may review a movie, discuss an influential director or explore new expressions in cinematography. We’re not placing restrictions on topics, and are accepting duplicates. (For example, if three people choose to review The Graduate, that would be groovy.)

Let us know which date works best for you. And please help yourself to the banners at the bottom of this post, created by the lovely & talented…

  1. This is a great idea! I look forward to reading the reviews of these wonderful old movies. Unlike many of your readers & contributors I was alive during this extremely creative & ground breaking year. Watching these movies opened my eyes to a world beyond my own small corner of the South. I will be reading this post & reliving these great memories. Thank you.

    1. I’m so glad you’ll be reading these! I’m interested to read some of them myself, as some of these films I haven’t yet seen, and some of them I have but it’s been a while. I didn’t realize, until I was looking up the year because of this challenge, how pivotal the year was for film. It’s really neat!
