Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema 2016
Where Movies and Music Come Alive
'Six years old and in ruder health than ever, Bo'ness' Hippodrome Festival of Silent
Cinema just seems to get bigger and better every time. This year festival director
Alison Strauss cast her net impressively wide to discover little-known early movies
from Germany, Poland, Ukraine, China and elsewhere. And the musicians Strauss involved
felt more unexpected, more of a gamble, but more revelatory as a result.' – The Scotsman
on HippFest 2016
The 6th Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema was our most ambitious festival yet
- with over 2000 tickets sold, 7 shows completely sold out, and a string of 4 and
5 star reviews.

In 2017 HippFest will take place from 22 to 26 March.
In the meantime you can catch HippFest 2016 sell-out 5 star screening of 'Wunder
der Schopfung' with a commissioned score by Herschel 36 at Platform on 23 April, and
at Doune the Rabbit Hole on 20 August and at various other Scottish venues during the autumn - check back here soon for details.
We hope you can join us then.
