Cinema Reborn in a Ritzy classic weekend of historic joys

Cinema Reborn is a weekend festival at Sydney's Randwick Ritz, re-presenting some classics remastered to their former glory.

Sydney has a fine community of cinema tragics with a bent for history, including Geoff Gardner who runs the blog Film Alert 101, archivist and filmmaker Graham Shirley, and Tina Kaufmann who wrote for Screenhub over many years.

Cinema Reborn is a film festival in miniature, which specialises in restored films and some wonderful pieces of cinema history which have been lost in the vaults for decades.
