2003 TEMECULA VALLEY INTERNATIONAL FILM & MUSIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES
LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT HONORS FOR MUSIC ICON, ETTA JAMES
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2003

TEMECULA, CA --- R&B, Soul & Jazz would just not be the same without powerful soul songstress, Etta James. Coming straight from her 2003
"Let's Roll" tour with a bevy of honors peppering her lengthy list of accomplishments, James is about to add yet another! The 2003 Temecula Valley
International Film & Music Festival (TVIFMF) is proud to announce Etta James will be receiving recognition and honors for the field of music, as she
is presented the Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual Black Tie Awards Gala , 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 13, 2003 at the Ponte
Family Estate Winery (35035 Rancho California Road, Temecula).

James is a woman whose career has spanned more than five decades and whose contributions to the music industry are unparalleled.
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, winner of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement
Award and numerous other honors, this magnetic, passionate, engaging, pioneering vocalist has left her mark from the age of R&B and doo-wop in
the mid-'50s through soul's late-'60s heyday, right up to today. Her fearless experimentation is evident in her recordings, from chart-topping R&B ballads including "At Last," "Trust In Me," and "All I Could Do Was Cry," to the gospel-infused "Something's Got A Hold On Me," the bluesy "In The Basement," and the Southern soul of "Tell Mama." James took home a Best Jazz Vocal Performance GRAMMY Award at the 37th Annual Awards for her album Mystery Lady (Songs Of Billie Holiday), and in 1999, "At Last" was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame.

This year's other honorees include:

FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS OF ACTING IN FILM & TELEVISION: Internationally recognized actress/writer/director and entertainment activist,
Diane Ladd. Ladd's credits include "Rambling Rose," "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," "Black Widow" and "28 Days."

FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DIRECTING PROFESSION, acclaimed director, Penelope Spheeris, whose credits include
"Wayne's World," "The Decline Of Western Civilization," and "Suburbia."

FOR SIGNIFICANT FILM EDUCATION CONTRIBUTIONS : Dr. Howard Suber, Professor Emeritus at the UCLA School of Theater Film &
Television and consultant/expert witness on copyright/creative control issues to all major film studios. Suber helped establish and chair the UCLA
Film Archive, the Critical Studies and Ph.D. Programs, and the Film & Television Producers Program. Geoffrey Gilmore, Director, Film Festival
Programming/Special Projects at the Sundance Institute will be introducing Suber for his honor.


FOR 64 YEARS IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY:, Paramount Pictures Executive, A.C. Lyles has served 50 years as a producer-writer-
partner in numerous theatrical features and television shows ("Young Fury," The Last Day," "Flight To The Holocaust" to "Here's Boomer"). His
many achievements include winning the George Washington Award of the Freedoms Foundation, being sworn onto the Presidential Board of
Advisors on Private Sector Initiatives in 1986 and White House Entertainment Hollywood/celebrity liaison through the administrations of Presidents
Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton.

Celebrating nine years, the TVIFMF is slated for September 10-14, 2003 at The Movie Experience 10 at Tower Plaza (25735 Ynez
Road). Last year the festival had over 6,000 attendees, boasting participation from 200 filmmakers, musicians, producers, directors, writers, judges, cast and crew. The Lifetime Achievement Awards have been part of the festival since inception back in 1995. Past recipients include: Ray Charles,
Rita Coolidge, Shirley Jones Robert Wise, Carl Reiner, Howard Koch, Marsha Mason, Billy Preston, Patty Duke and William Shatner.

TVIFMF's tradition of showcasing excellence in film and music has featured emerging styles from North America and 20+ countries
around the world.
