The THIRD Yorkshire Silent Film Festival, featuring the greatest silent films with musical accompaniments!
This May, the second Yorkshire Silent Film Festival brings the
magic of silent cinema with live music to cinemas, theatres, arts centres and community
venues around Yorkshire. With forty screenings, fifteen venues, ten musicians,
two orchestras and a jazz band, this is the largest celebration of live-scored
film in the UK.
There are lots of great films to see, from chilling thrillers
to slapstick comedies, costume dramas, cartoons, science fiction fantasy and
Hollywood romance. We’ve films from the UK, USA, Denmark, Soviet Russia,
France, Spain, Germany and Japan. You could enjoy a varied collection of short
films or immerse yourself in a two-and- a-half hour epic.
Whatever you choose to see, you’ll hear some of the finest
specialist film musicians scoring each film, live. If you’ve not tried silent
cinema with music before, give it a go. We guarantee you’ll come back for more.
