Maxell Co-Sponsoring New York Film Festival
The 45th annual New York Film Festival has acquired a new sponsor. One of the world’s leading producers of optical and magnetic memory media, Maxell, has been added to the extensive list of backers. The list also includes HBO Films and Kodak.
The festival began Sept. 28, and will run through Oct 14 at the Fredrick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The opening screening was held at Avery Fisher Hall, also in Lincoln Center, and the closing screening will be held there as well.
Several Maxell executives, including Senior Marketing Manager Patricia Byrne; Vice President; Barbara Sommer and Director of Sales Tony Petruzziello, attended the press screening for Martin Scorsese’s restoration of John M. Stahl’s 1945 film “Leave Her to Heaven.”
