Of course, the most important date is Saturday, February 16, when the Banquet will be held in the Main Dining Room of Clubhouse 2, with socializing from: 5-5:45 pm, dinner from 6-7 pm, and video entry showings at 7:45 pm. The Video Acceptance Committee will again select the 10 top video entries to be shown at the Banquet.

A delicious sit-down dinner by Jolanda will feature Marbella chicken or salmon with lemon sauce or vegetarian cheese ravioli with marinara sauce.

Two familiar faces will join us again this year, according Banquet Chair Marsha Berman. They are Mark Hochberg, who will provide his great piano stylings during the GRF no-host cocktail hour, and David Dearing, who will serve as our Master of Ceremonies.

Join us for this gala, dress-up, Academy Awards-themed evening – coming just a week before the 91st Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Awards, to be broadcast live by ABC on Sunday, February 24, 2019.
