  • Monty Python Celebration Weekend at Tribeca Film Festival 2015

    The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, today announced a special celebration to mark the 40th Anniversary of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" including a special screening of the film and the international premiere of the documentary "Monty Python - The Meaning of Live" directed by Roger Graef and James Rogan. In honor of the anniversary the Festival will also host special screenings of classic Python films "Monty Python’s Life of Brian" and "Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life".

    John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin, will all be in town to present the special presentation of "Monty Python and The Holy Grail", which will screen on Friday April 24 at The Beacon Theater.

    Continuing its celebration of the Pythons the Festival will debut the Python’s latest documentary, "Monty Python - The Meaning of Live", on Saturday, April 25; "Monty Python’s Life of Brian" will screen on April 25, and "Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life" on April 26.

    Each film presentation will be followed by a Q&A with some of the members of Monty Python.

    Terry G, Michael and Eric had the following to say on the announcement:

    Terry G: "It’s amazing how lack of money saved us from mediocrity. We couldn’t afford real horses”.

    Michael: "The Pythons are looking forward very much to the Tribeca Film Festival and the chance to meet anyone who can remember why we made Monty Python and The Holy Grail. All we know is that it was a documentary about coconuts that rather lost its way. If anyone at Tribeca can explain why we made it and didn't call it Braveheart then our visit to New York will not have been wasted”.

    Eric: "I often had the feeling the movie might make a good Broadway musical…."

    Tickets for the special screening of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" go on sale on 23 March. Visit here to find out more.
