Los Angeles, CA, March 17, 2004 – Frank Marshall, one of Hollywood's most respected and successful motion picture producers, will deliver the Keynote Address during the Eighth annual Large Format Cinema Association conference scheduled April 28th – 30th in Los Angeles. The conference will take place at the Universal City Hilton and at Universal CityWalk IMAX Theater.

Founded in 1996, the Large Format Cinema Association is a non-profit corporation created to promote international public awareness of large-screen entertainment formats, and to provide a forum for sharing information among 70mm filmmakers, distributors, suppliers, exhibitors, and manufacturers.

In 1981 Marshall formed industry powerhouse Amblin Entertainment with Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg, one of the industries most productive and successful production companies. Marshall departed Amblin in 1991 and together with Kennedy formed The Kennedy/Marshall Company. Kennedy/Marshall's productions include a remarkably diverse and popular group of films, including Snow Falling on the Cedars, Map of the World, The Bourne Identity, The Sixth Sense, Signs, and Seabiscuit.

Marshall pioneered the entry of mainstream filmmakers into Large Format films, producing OLYMPIC GLORY and Disney's THE YOUNG BLACK STALLION.
