It’s the 30th anniversary of the “The Secret Policeman’s Ball” benefit shows that raised money for Amnesty International. This alone is a frightening thought — really, 1979 was 30 years ago? Seems like yesterday.

Anyway,’Martin Lewis’has organized Los Angeles and New York film festivals that are not to be missed. You can see’Sting’s witty, self-effacing promo [1] for it, and the whole thing can be accessed here [2]. The films are out on DVD, too, but so much nicer to see on the big screen. The versions of “Roxanne” and “Message in a Bottle” are remarkable — and only available here since the CDs for both “Policeman’s Ball” albums are out of print.

P.S. There’s also a new, funny message from Monty Python’s’Michael Palin posted here [3].
