We are currently organsing the licensing for the festival selection but we hope to release a provisional programme as soon as possible.

 

We will have the leading silent film pianists in the UK, Costas Fotopoulos, John Sweeney, Cyrus Gabrysch, Lillian Henley and Meg Morley.

This Second Silent Laughter Saturday will include classic comedies from the USA, Great Britain and continental Europe. Subject to confirmation, we hope to present Max Linder’s rare 1919 French feature Le Petit Café. Author and film-maker Kevin Brownlow will introduce one of Harold Lloyd’s personal favourites among his feature-length films, The Kid Brother (1927).

Visiting from the USA will be author and historian Anthony Slide, giving a talk – with clips – about the brilliant but sadly neglected comedienne Alice Howell. Anthony Slide has recently written the first full-length biography of Alice Howell and copies will be available to buy (and have signed!) on the day.
