Hippodrome Silent Film Festival will take place online between 17 – 21 March 2021
The programme will feature the much anticipated The Woman Men Yearn For starring Marlene Dietrich from the 2020 line-up, with the premiere of a new score by the Frame Ensemble.
There will be International films, guests and musicians and live Q&As, Silent Film Quiz, Silver Screen Suppers Cook-along and more. All that will be missing is the surroundings of the oldest purpose built cinema in Scotland with its star-studded ceiling. Some films have in the past been shown outdoors at the railway station on the steam railway line which was very popular.
Full programme and tickets released on 16 February, available via www.hippfest.co.uk.
The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival is organised by Falkirk Community Trust with key funding and support from Falkirk Council, Screen Scotland, Film Hub Scotland (BFI Film Audience Network) and Visit Falkirk. www.hippfest.co.uk
