A New Beatles Concert Film — With Fan Footage

posted by Nell Minow

An exclusive story in The Wrap has some big news:

The Beatles’ Apple Corps has authorized a production company, OVOW, to scour the globe for material captured by amateurs and professionals during the group’s concert tours in the 1960s for a major film project called “The Beatles Live!”

OVOW — an acronym for One Voice One World, a reference to the Beatles’ final live performance in the “Our World” satellite broadcast on June 25, 1967 — says it has commissioned worldwide research teams and developed social-media tools to work with fans and concertgoers in all 116 cities where the Beatles performed to get material for the film.

The goal: combining footage, images, music, interviews and stories chronicling the Fab Four’s 250 concerts from October 1963 through final concert in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on Aug. 28, 1966,

Aiding in the search will be archivists, collectors, Beatles fan clubs, writers, academics and film restoration-experts. A website, The Beatles Live! Project, has been set up where fans can get news about the project, map the group’s tours and provide digital media, through the end of the year.

One of the great pleasures of this time of year is voting for so many of my favorite filmmakers as a part of the Black Reel Awards. Thanks, as ever, to Tim Gordon for allowing me to participate. I think it is fair to say we had more and better choices this year than we ever have before. Here are
