Our festival is committed to providing a place where fans can meet and hear from the actors, directors, stunt people and more who have provided us with years of enjoyment through movies and television.
Our festival dates back to 1972 and is constantly evolving. It was started by Packy Smith, Mitch Schaperkotter, Wayne Lackey and Tommy Floyd as a place for western film collectors to gather in Memphis, TN. That first gathering featured Sunset Carson, Lash LaRue, Don "Red" Barry, Max Terhune and Russell Hayden. In 2004 Ray Nielsen took up the reins as Festival Director and since then has continued to enlist the expertise of the many capable and dedicated volunteers who help make our festival the success it is.
Celebrities appear on panels each day and are involved
in Q&A sessions. They spend time daily in the Dealers' Room where attendees can speak with them and obtain
personally autographed photos.
There are dozens of dealers with movie and TV memorabilia
of all types including DVDs, toys and collectibles.
Throughout the festival we hold a variety of other events
that may include auctions, a radio show recreation,
trivia contest. Be sure to attend the celebrity banquet
