Siggraph and VIFC @ SPARK FX '09 will screen the re-release film prints of "Star Wars" (1977), "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" (1983).
"...In this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Star Wars fans can revisit these seminal films in their original form as they make their only appearance in Canada. Brief access to these valuable prints from the Fox Films vault was secured directly from Lucasfilm by Dennis Muren - Hollywood visual effects expert and Star Wars veteran (Star Wars, ET, Terminator 2, Indiana Jones) who will be a special guest on the evening and who is also leading a seminar during the Festival...."
