For some moviegoers, Patterson Gimline is just another name for the “rock film festival,” where the best films of the past 10 years are screened to the audience.
But for the film director and producer behind the best-selling “Rock, Paper, Scissors” franchise, the festival is a way to showcase his own filmography and the legacy of his iconic 1970s and ’80s TV series.
It’s also a way for him to give back to the community he helped build, he said.
Patterson Gimlin, who died in March, helped establish and launch the Rock, Paper and Scissors film festival in 1982 and now runs the festival for more than 100 years.
“It was something I had in mind, and I thought it would be fun to have a few days to give something back,” he said during a phone interview from Los Angeles.
Gimlin was one of only three people who won a MacArthur “genius grant” in 2015 to help fund the film festival, which features a full lineup of award-winning films from around the world.
The awards are meant to honor those who have made the most profound contributions to science fiction, film, literature and popular culture, but also those who make the most lasting and meaningful impact on the field.
The Rock, Pencil and Scissor is one of five films in the festival that Gimlin was the director of.
Others include “A Clockwork Orange” and “The Big Lebowski.”
The film festival is held every year at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Gimlin and the rest of the festival team were among several hundred film enthusiasts who made the trip from around California and beyond to see the films.
The festival, run by the National Film Preservation Board, is a part of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Association of Film Critics, which is part of a consortium of film organizations.
Gimerlin was awarded the MacArthur grant in 2015.
He told NBC News he’s honored to have helped start the festival, but he said the film awards don’t give him a free pass.
“I’m the only person in the world that’s been nominated for a MacArthur,” he joked.
“I know what it’s like to get nominated, but that’s not the point.
The point is that the film is nominated, and that’s the way it’s going to be.
The audience will vote on the nominations and we’ll choose the best of the best.”
The Rock and Pencil, Scissors are the only two films in this year’s film festival to have not been nominated.
The festival also holds a series of film festivals across the country each year, with the most recent one held in July at the Warner Bros. lot in New York.
“This year, we’re doing three films, so I thought this year was going to take longer,” said Pat Patterson, the founder of Patterson Glimlins.
“It was a really nice surprise.
The first film is ‘A Clockwork Angst’ that we were going to do in the fall, but it’s been moved to the Museum of the Moving Image.
The second film is a film about the Vietnam War called ‘The Man From Washington,’ and the third is about a documentary called ‘Memento Mori.'”
Patterson said the festival’s mission was to help make art accessible to all and that the festival has helped to create a “culture of film appreciation and community.”””
So, I decided to try to do it on a Saturday.”
Patterson said the festival’s mission was to help make art accessible to all and that the festival has helped to create a “culture of film appreciation and community.”
“We try to bring film festivals to cities where they are really not happening,” Patterson explained.
“We’re trying to change that.”
Pat Patterson and the other artists who will be screening the films in 2019 will be on the short list for the MacArthur Prize for their work, but the jury is still looking for other films that will win.
Pat Patterson is one who is looking forward to the festival.
He said that the other festivals that he has been invited to are not so much festivals but more of community events.
“They’re community events,” Patterson admitted.
“You’re invited to a movie, you’re invited on the street, you have a conversation.
They’re more like community events that people go to to see a film or just go for a meal.”
Paterson, who was also the recipient of the 2015 MacArthur grant, said he was honored to be invited to the event.
He hopes that the awards show will serve as a way of sharing his work and helping the film community understand what Patterson Gimlin has meant to the art form.
“When I was in the early stages of my career, I felt a little bit disempowered,” Patterson recalled.
“Now that I’m in the middle of my 60s
