22nd Annual Silent Film Festival

San Francisco Silent Film Festival

The program features a diverse and lively schedule of silent-era films, all with live musical accompaniment by accomplished musicians from around the world. This year's program features many new film restorations, including two full-length titles SFSFF has had a direct hand in restoring (The Three Musketeers, 1921, and Silence, 1926), as well as a very special discovery: a reel from a lost 1927 Louise Brooks/Wallace Beery comedy (Now We're in the Air)! Films from nine countries will be represented--France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Poland, Sweden, UK, USA, and the USSR--as well as two titles helmed by female directors.


This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza had to say about 22nd Annual Silent Film Festival :

The Castro Theatre’s classic movie palace ambience conjures its beginnings with this annual festival celebrating masterpieces of the silent film era, each with its own live musical accompaniment by a variety of artists, like Berklee Silent Film Orchestra on opening night playing to The Freshman, and DJ Spooky providing the soundtrack for Body and Soul, featuring the great Paul Robeson.
