Contributions to new The Band film?
A new theatrical documentary film about our boys is currently in the
works. We have been contacted by the Canadians behind the project, who
are searching for the best possible archival material available. Of
particular interest to them are:
Interviews with Levon, Richard and Rick -- preferably on
camera, but audio only is also fine.
Hawks material pre-Dylan, 8mm home movies and good quality
photos in particular.
Artifacts, memorabilia and ephemera, to be shot on professional
equipment (and then returned to you, of course).
If you have anything in your personal (or public?) collections that
you wish to contribute to such a film project, please contact yours
truly ASAP by sending an e-mail to
According to the project's archive producer, "there would
definitely be a modest stipend involved and quite possibly screen
credit" for contributions that end up being used in the film.
