THURSDAY JUNE 1 THROUGH SUNDAY JUNE 4 SPECIAL EVENT
SAN FRANCISCO SILENT FILM FESTIVAL

Twenty-two years! SFSFF is thrilled to continue presenting indelible live cinema events at San Francisco’s glorious silent-era movie palace, the Castro Theatre. This year brings many restorations including three titles SFSFF had a hand in—Silence with Cinémathèque Française, The Three Musketeers with MoMA, and a fragment of the lost Wallace Beery, Louise Brooks film Now We’re in the Air with the Czech National Archive! We’re presenting films from nine countries, including Poland and Japan! Two films directed by women! Musicians from around the world! Special guests! Extras! Enchantment!

All films at SFSFF are accompanied with live music by extraordinary musicians. Our favorites are returning—Alloy Orchestra, Berklee Silent Film Orchestra, Frank Bockius, Guenter Buchwald, Stephen Horne, Sascha Jacobsen, Matti Bye Ensemble, Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, and Donald Sosin—and we're thrilled to welcome DJ Spooky in his SFSFF premiere!
