For decades movie makers have been producing extraordinary films focused on the epic Titanic story. One has not been seen in over 75 years, until now. The films chosen for the one-day event will be available to registered guests to screen via on demand streaming Saturday, April 8th. “L.A. Beadles”, Titanic Historian and host and creator of the podcast, Unsinkable: The Titanic Podcast, will be your host and will set up each film with an interview with the lead researcher and cast member of the film “The SIX” and with a published author and historian, about the “Titanic (1943)”.


The Titanic (1943) movie scheduled for viewing during the Virtual Titanic Film Festival, while noteworthy for its historical value, does not imply a Titanic Museum Attractions endorsement for its propaganda-filled content.


Your dollars will go to the Titanic Museum Historical Foundation Organization, a 501C nonprofit. Its mission is the Preservation of the Titanic Museum artifacts/research files. 

This little-known German film retells the true story of the British ocean liner that met a tragic fate. Ernst Fritz Fürbringer plays the president of the White Star Line, who unwisely pressed the Titanic's captain (Otto Wernicke) to make the swiftest possible crossing to New York.
