"Remembering Gene Wilder" (Promotional still)

He was born Jerome Silberman to an assimilated Milwaukee Jewish family. His childhood buddies called him Jerry. But to millions of filmgoers, he was Gene Wilder, the extraordinary comic genius who put his singular mark on films including “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein.”

Told in part through Wilder’s own voice (he recorded an audiobook of his memoir), “Remembering Gene Wilder” showcases some of Wilder’s most memorable movie lines—“Put..the candle…back,” along with touching home movies and outtakes from the movie set. You’ll want to binge-watch Wilder’s whole career after this delightful tribute!

Film introduction by executive producer Julie Nimoy. Followed by a live in-person conversation with director Ron Frank and writer/co-director Glenn Kirschbaum, moderated by BJF artistic director Lisa Gossels.
