Exhibition of solidarity to celebrate the 75th anniversary of King Kong
The fantasy film magazine Scifiworld will be organizing, as a part of the Sitges - International Film Festival of Catalonia and with the collaboration of Planeta de Agostini and Norma Editorial publishing companies, a charity event to mark the 75th anniversary of King Kong that will be entitled "King Kong Solidario" (Supportive King Kong) and aimed at raising money for Médicos sin Fronteras (SpanishDoctors Without Borders).
For this exhibition, different celebrities from the movie, illustration and comic worlds like Cels Piñol, Alfonso Azpiri, Daniel Acuña, Paul Gulacy, Rafael Albuquerque (image), Dave Dorman or Sanjulián, among many others, have donated an original autographed illustration depicting King Kong. The originals will be exhibited all throughout the upcoming Festival (that will be held from October 2nd to the 12th) and will later be auctioned off on Ebay.
An exhibition catalogue will also be published that can be purchased during the Festival itself at Scifiworld's website (www.scifiworld.es) and afterwards at specialized bookstores. The profits obtained from all catalogue sales will also go to the abovementioned organization.
In addition, anyone wishing to contribute to this initiative can do so by donating the amount he or she considers appropriate through the website of Médicos sin Fronteras www.msf.es
