Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 2019

HippFest 2019 will run from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 March 2019.

The Hippodrome Silent Film Festival or HippFest, is Scotland's first and only Festival celebrating silent film and live music.

Its programme includes rare or unique silent screenings at the Hippodrome and other venues in Bo'ness, accompanied by live improvised music; new commissions, talks, workshops, and pop-up screenings.

First launched in 2011, the Festival has grown year-on-year and is now recognised as a key annual event in Scotland's cultural calendar.
