PGA launches Debra Hill Film Fest

'Halloween,' 'Big Top Pee-wee' screenings will benefit charitable grant

The Producers Guild of America is launching the inaugural Debra Hill Film Festival on Oct. 26 and 27 at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles.

The festival is a benefit to raise funds for the Debra Hill Fellowship — dubbed the largest charitable grant given exclusively to emerging producers.

The festival is sponsored by Mondo and the New Beverly Cinema in association with the PGA and Women In Film. Hill’s “Big Top Pee-wee” will screen Oct. 26 with Paul Reubens, Randall Kleiser and Penelope Ann Miller in attendance along with Debra and John Carpenter’s “Halloween” on Oct. 27 with John Carpenter participating.

Principals Quentin Tarantino and Michael Torgan have provided the New Beverly Cinema as the home for the event.

Hill died in 2005.
