The Fifth Annual DVD Entertainment Conference & Showcase announced that renowned critic and writer Leonard Maltin will return for the third year in a row to moderate the Hollywood Director’s View panel discussion and Fifth Annual DVD Awards. The 5th Annual DVD Entertainment Conference & Showcase will take place August 21-22, 2002, at the Universal City Hilton, Universal City, Calif.

“The name Leonard Maltin is synonymous in the popular culture with film historians,” said Charles Van Horn, president of the International Recording Media Association (IRMA), a co-producer of the event. “His ongoing association with our DVD Entertainment conference as moderator of the Director’s Panel and host of the DVD Awards is a fruitful relationship that lends a one-of-a-kind passion for the motion pictures on any format, but especially on DVD.”

Maltin is in his 20th season as film historian and correspondent for the television show Entertainment Tonight, and is now co-hosting the weekly movie review show Hot Ticket. His annual paperback, Leonard Maltin’s Movie & Video Guide, is considered a standard film reference around the world. Maltin’s other titles include The Great American Broadcast and Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons. “I've enjoyed hosting the awards ceremonies and filmmaking panels the past two years and look forward to another session this summer,” said Maltin. “The DVD boom is big news this year, and I'm delighted to be associated with an event that celebrates the home video format of choice for a growing number of movie buffs.”

The Fifth Annual DVD Entertainment Conference & Showcase—an executive-level seminar and showcase of DVD technologies for studios, labels, producers and facilities involved in the creation, production and distribution of DVD-Video, -Audio and -ROM entertainment titles—is the longest-running full-service DVD conference/showcase. It is co-produced by the International Recording Media Association (IRMA) and United Entertainment Media’s Medialine magazine.
