Festival 2024

At last! We are pleased to announce that the 27th San Francisco Silent Film Festival will take place at San Francisco’s historic Palace of Fine Arts April 10–14.

A feast for lovers of classic film and live music that is as elaborate, ambitious, and masterfully mounted as any I've seen.
