TCM film fest set to return

Just-concluded event will come back to Hollywood in 2011

A second edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival is in the works.

Cabler, which just wrapped its inaugural event this weekend in Hollywood, said it was going forward with another fest next spring.

The announcement was made by the network’s primetime host, Robert Osborne, prior to the unspooling of a restored version of 1927 pic “Metropolis.

“It’s been a thrill for all of us at TCM that our first classic film festival has been such a success, so we’re definitely going to do it again,” said Osborne, the official emcee of the festival.

Q&A sessions with cast and crew accompanied several screenings at the fest, with Grauman’s Chinese and the Egyptian Theater often playing host. TCM taped many panels and individual interviews, and will air them throughout the year.

Event prides itself on offering restorations of several films, which this year included 1954’s George Cukor-directed “A Star Is Born,” starring Judy Garland and James Mason.
