There were legal problems preventing the screening, apparently. Anthony and Claire Bueno were there, though, and screened an 18 minute highlight reel. Now, I'm annoyed because I can't find the source on Facebook, but the person who posted earlier today said that despite the disappointment there was loads of footage and bits they'd never seen before, and that the reel was fantastic. However, there were supposedly only about twenty people at said screening, as it clashed with meet and greets and other interviews, so it seems to a been a bit of a frustrating day all round for the documentary team.
"I was at the Cleanin' Up The Town panel. They were only able to show 18 minutes of the film (I guess due to legal reasons), but what they showed was amazing. Tons of behind the scenes photos and footage that has never been publicly seen before. Amazing interviews and tidbits, which really captured the cast and crews personalities. Jaw dropping stuff! Sadly, there were probably only 20 people in attendance since there were 10 other panels starting at the same time. I think it was a shame because this would've been a top highlight at Fan Fest for most people."

The Bueno team was heartbroken that they couldn't screen the entire film at the event. They found out two days prior that major chunks of the film couldn't be shown due to licensing. Antony, the director, spent the night before the event re-editing a reel of footage that they could show. It was also stated that the 18 minute reel they had shown was exclusive to the event and that it wasn't in the complete documentary. I could get into specifics of what was shown as there was stuff in there that blew my mind but I guess that would be spoilers?

It sucks that they were only able to show 18 minutes of footage. I really thought the whole thing would *finally* be shown. Considering the amount of interviews they have recorded, some with people no longer among the living, all of that footage really needs to be seen. I think it's about time someone tells Ghost Corps to look into buying the footage and releasing it as their own thing. They certainly won't have to worry about "licensing issues" very much, and we'd know it will actually be released.

By the way, if their "licensing issues" are film clips and music, just switch to stock music and license still photos, which are MUCH cheaper than moving clips. The interviews are the important thing here, not the music and film clips that fans have seen and heard a million times over.

The movie's 35 years old. Lay it on us. ;)

I don't have any editing experience but given the amount of stories I've seen about Wizard World, I'd go out on a limb and guess the Buenos were told at the last minute about the "licensing issue" and rather than reedit the finished product, the better compromise was to go with unused files and edit together an 18 minute piece that didn't violate the "licensing issue."

Hey, don't forget the archive material, buddy! :love:

More in this direction.

Anthony cut together the 18-minute reel the previous night. Dude is a machine. The other option was to not screen anything.

There was also a Q&A panel that a few people recorded.

I just realized the full release date hasn't come up yet. I think it was left as June 2019? And there be 2 weeks left this month.
