The British Silent Film Festival returns from September 11th to 15th. Sunday's programme will include a surprise film and a selection of travelogues, Victorian shorts and a special look at the Leicester Film Society of the 1930s.
A secret early sound film will delight audiences followed by a wonderful programme of European travelogues.
After lunch there will be an illustrated exploration of the Leicester Film Society in the 1930s, followed by films and a talk on Weimar cinema.
The final event of the day takes place at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery with a programme of Victorian short films, restored from their original large-format to IMAX quality and presented by Bryony Dixon, Curator of silent cinema at the BFI National Archive.
This year will be the 20th iteration of the British Silent Film Festival and it celebrates the centenary of the birth of Wiemar and Expressionist cinema in Germany and its global influence between 1919 and 1932, particularly on British cinema.
