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.

If you were part of it then please tweet, comment, like and share your experiences online.

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.
