Yorkshire Silent Film Festival

The THIRD Yorkshire Silent Film Festival, featuring the greatest silent films with musical accompaniments!

Founded in 2016, Yorkshire Silent Film Festival is the UK's largest celebration of live-scored silent film. Each May, YSFF collaborates with cinemas, theatres and community venues across Yorkshire to present three weeks of live music with film. We show all types of silent film from the familiar to the virtually unknown. We've screened films from the UK, USA, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Russia, India, and China. Every YSFF event is a live performance; a wide variety of musicians collaborate to create unique, improvised scores for each film. YSFF also develops talent though Playing Pictures, a unique programme of workshops and masterclasses for improvising musicians to develop their film accompaniment skills.
