Alfred Hitchcock Day

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock was an English film director and producer. He pioneered many techniques in the suspense and psychological thriller genres.
Alfred Hitchcock Day celebrates the man behind the movies. Many critics consider Hitchcock to be the greatest filmmaker of all time.

Alfred Hitchcock (13 August 1899 – 29 April 1980) was born in London at the very end of the 19th century. In his early twenties he began designing titles for silent films, and within a few short years he began his directing career — a career that spanned six decades. With almost seventy films to his credit, Hitchcock developed a distinct directorial style aimed at manipulating his audience in order to maximize their feelings of empathy and anxiety. He is widely regarded as the greatest British filmmaker of all time and his contributions to cinema made him a Hollywood icon long before his death in 1980.
