To our fellow classic movie fans,
In our last communication, we shared that we were closely monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and that ensuring the health and safety of our fans, special guests, partners and staff was our top priority.
In light of the increasing public health concerns related to coronavirus and after consultation with our internal and external partners, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 TCM Classic Film Festival.
As previously announced, all pass purchases will be refunded at 100%. Pass purchasers should allow 10-15 business days for the refund to appear on the credit card used. No written cancellation request is required.
When we first announced the TCM Classic Film Festival in 2009, we were often asked, “Why does a TV network want to start a film festival?” That answer was easy for us. It was because we knew you’d come. Well, you certainly did and for that we sincerely thank you.

We assure you that we will begin planning the next TCM Classic Film Festival soon and will endeavor to make the 2021 edition the best Festival yet. We expect dates for the 2021 TCM Classic Film Festival to be announced in late summer or early fall of 2020.
Until then, here’s looking at you.
