New Additions to Bonnaroo Cinema
Festival organizers are also pleased to announce the new additions to this year's cinema tent. The Bonnaroo Cinema tent has been one of the main attractions at the festival since it began in 2002. The air-conditioned space with comfortable seating has always played host to a wide variety of movies, including sneak previews of new films, classics, world cinema, documentaries, short films, animated films and even NBA Finals games, 24 hours a day.
This year, Bonnaroo is proud to add the "Filmmakers in Focus" series, featuring screenings and interviews with some of the most creative minds in filmmaking today. Jim Jarmusch will host a showing of his film "COFFEE and CIGARETTES" and will sit for an up-close Q&A. In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Monterey Pop festival, director D.A. Pennebaker will be presenting the classic "Monterey Pop" documentary.
Also, Oscar-nominated animator Bill Plympton will participate in a 90-minute presentation about himself and his work. The tent will also be screening a sneak peek of the new HBO series "HBO Presents Flight of the Conchords" twice daily.
