Universal Pictures to Host the West Coast Premiere of 'Snow Falling on Cedars' To Benefit the American Film Institute Associates on Thursday, December 9

WHAT: The West Coast Premiere of Universal Pictures' ``Snow Falling On

Cedars,`` Academy Award(TM)-nominated director Scott Hicks'

first film since ``Shine,'' to benefit the AFI (American Film

Institute) Associates. Based on David Guterson's best-selling

novel, ``Snow Falling On Cedars'' is a haunting tale of love

undone by societal pressures and familial customs -- an

elegiac, multi-layered exploration of truth, justice and

vagaries of the human heart. ``Snow Falling On Cedars'' opens in

select cities on Wednesday, December 22, 1999, and nationwide

on Friday, January 7, 2000.

               the American Film Institute.  The Associates also develop
               creative programs that enlist community support, and have
               raised nearly $3 million on behalf of the institute.
