It’s that time again! Edward Norton’s birthday is fast approaching. For the uninitiated, The Annual Norton Film Festival (TANFF) is an annual celebration surrounding actor Edward Norton’s birthday on August 18. We spend the week watching Norton flicks and enjoying his stellar onscreen performance. Some of the movies we are watching this year will be open to the public, and we would love to have you join us! Our schedule is as follows:
- Saturday, August 15: TANFF kick-off with a private viewing of The Painted Veil (2006, starring Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, and Edward Norton; rated PG-13). Sorry, this event is not open to the public.
- Sunday, August 16: No movie.
- Monday, August 17: Private viewing of Pride and Glory (2008, starring Colin Farrell, Jon Voight, and Edward Norton; rated R). Sorry, this event is not open to the public, as we have not yet seen this movie.
