TCM Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Exciting Lineup of Events and Programs

Hollywood, California – Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is gearing up for an eventful year as it marks its 30th anniversary. The iconic movie channel has announced a lineup of programming and special events to commemorate the occasion.

One of the highlights of TCM’s calendar is the 15th annual TCM Classic Film Festival, which will take place in April. The festival will pay tribute to film historian Jeanine Basinger with the Robert Osborne Award and honor actor Billy Dee Williams and makeup artist Lois Burwell.

In addition to the festival, TCM will be launching several new ventures. The network’s official podcast, “The Plot Thickens,” will debut later this year, following the release of “Talking Pictures: A Movie Memories Podcast.” TCM is also partnering with Max to produce these podcasts.

TCM will also collaborate with The New Republic to showcase films from their list of the “100 Most Significant Political Films of All-Time,” featuring cohosts from the worlds of journalism, politics, and film.

Furthermore, a new documentary executive produced by Martin Scorsese, titled “Made in London,” will make its U.S. television premiere on TCM this year.

Lastly, mark your calendars for the TCM Classic Film Festival in April, with the theme “Most Wanted: Crime and Justice in Film.” This four-day event on Hollywood Boulevard will showcase a wide selection of beloved movies, featuring appearances by legendary stars, panel discussions, and special screenings.
