GIVEAWAY | Passes to the World Premiere of Monty Python: Almost the Truth

To mark the 40th anniversary of the creation of Monty Python and the troupe's lifetime achievements, IFC and BAFTA are reuniting Monty Python for a red carpet screening of Almost the Truth, a new documentary which tells the Python phenomenon from start to finish.  The event will be held on October 15th at 7PM at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.

The complete Python troupe John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and even the late Graham Chapman will attend this official Python reunion event, which will include a screening of the theatrical version of the Original IFC documentary Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut). Following the screening, all five surviving members of the Monty Python team will sit down for a Q&A discussion and will be presented with a Special Award from BAFTA to honor their outstanding contribution to film and television.

"This event will be a part of pop culture history. IFC is honored to co-host this celebratory occasion and air the definitive documentary tribute to one of comedy’s greatest legends," said Jennifer Caserta, executive vice president and general manager of IFC. "Everyone has their favorite Python moments, and they continue to inspire new generations of comedians. This premiere will be the grand finale of an entire year of original alternative comedy on IFC."

Following the screening, IFC plans to kick off a Python-a-thon by airing a 6-part, extra lengthy version of this documentary starting Sunday, Oct. 18th.
