GODZILLAFEST was San Francisco's seven-day, twenty-film celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the world's most famous monster. GODZILLAFEST not only showcased five decades of monster cinema, at the 1400-seat Castro Theatre, but was also dedicated to the talented artists who brought these films to life. GODZILLAFEST featured displays on the films and public addresses by several Guests of Honor, including a representative from the San Francisco office of the Consul General of Japan.
An amazing success, GODZILLAFEST was an event that participants and audiences will never forget. Actors from Japan and Hollywood, as well as local movie hosts were on hand for on-stage interviews and discussions, as well as autograph sessions for the fans.
Vendors of Godzilla goods made up a veritable Monster Bazaar in the Castro's Mezzanine, offering toys, books, posters and more from the 28-movie career of Toho's rampaging behemoth!
To add to the excitement, Bay Area Film Events also held an art exhibit of pre-production sketches and storyboards by Toho master designer, Yasuyuki Inoue. There was also a Godzilla 50-Year Birthday Bash near Japantown, which had a model contest, dealers and a video game tournament featuring Atari's Godzilla: Save the Earth PlayStation 2 game.
