FESTIVAL 2017: June 1–4

We have big plans for our 2017 festival, which will take place at San Francisco's landmark movie palace Castro Theatre June 1–4, 2017. Don't miss it!

Watch this space for periodic announcements. For instance, we've announced the rediscovery of a lost Cecil B. DeMille production—Silence—which is being restored by the Cinémathèque Française and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival as we speak! Silence will have its world premiere at SFSFF 2017. Also, the cat is out of the bag—Alloy Orchestra will premiere its new score for one of the most intriguing films of the silent era, Teinosuke Kinugasa's A Page of Madness, in a new restoration. And we're happy to announce that the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra will be back with a new score for Harold Lloyd's comedy masterpiece, The Freshman!

The complete SFSFF 2017 will be revealed on March 29!
