17th Annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival

San Francisco Silent Film Festival

The 17th annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival takes place July 12 through 15 at the Castro Theatre. Each screening is accompanied by live music and the festival’s opener, Wings (1927), will include live foley effects by sound designer Ben Burtt (WALL-E, Star Wars).

Since 1992, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival has provided international audiences with the rare opportunity to view a diverse array of masterpieces from the silent era at one of the country’s few remaining fully operational movie palaces from the 1920s. This year’s festival includes many gems, taking the audience from stark Antarctica, to Zorro’s old California, to animated cartoon worlds.
